Shift RPM?

Hey Guys,

I took my car to the strip the other day, and noticed that power signifigantly drops off as you near the 6,000 RPM mark. Does anyone know what RPM to get the ideal shift at? I pulled my best run at around 5,850 RPM.

Thanks for the input!

get an AP and your power won't drop off like that anymore.

I would shift at about 5500; seems to be what this car likes. Just don't let that create any extra shifts during your run.

Re: Shift RPM?

Just ordered an AccessPort and Turbo Inlet Hose to compliment my Cobb SRI.

Interesting to see where the new power band will be!
