I have a one piece, but I also have a manual transmission. Not really sure how much of a difference it would make with just the shaft. You might not even "feel" a difference.

2-piece driveshafts are much better for NVH, there's no substantial power to be found unless ou go to a very lightweight single piece, which will likely vibrate at the stock length.
