So even if the HP line flattens out at 7000 rpm, the engine will still pull all the way past the redline. Only if the HP line drops off significantly would you want to short shift. So run it as close to the redline as you dare without hitting the rev limiter. ;D The only reason to shift early is if you need to get a shift in before a high speed sweeper.
The only thing I'm waiting for is TracKey! I planned to dyno it right away with both the street and TracKey tunes so we can see where it makes power. I also thought about doing it with and without discs but not sure if I'll bother with that since my discs are out for good. Now if I consider axle backs or a different exhaust, then I'll do the comparison. I just don't want to spend the time and money to put it on the dyno until we have TracKey since that's the only tune I'll want to study for track use.2012Boss said:
