I don't have an auto, but just thinking this thing through, shifting at closer to max torque would chirp more????

It's the canned tune. I guarantee an email tune will wake that thing up... night and day difference.

Are you manually shifting or just putting it in D?

Either way... I've got guys with autos who can roast the tires let alone chirp. Give me a call, you'll love the auto tune!!

We just had a bone stock auto trans with an Edelbrock E-Force go 11.65 with our stage 1 system. So we know the calibrating!

i'm leavin it in D.

wat i did was tested rpm shifts 5800-6300. 5800 was the strongest, got them to finally chirp, 6300 felt sluggish. i saw a few dyno's of stangs that have the same mods as me, and the graphs have shown the same results with a canned tune: peak HP has been at 5800 and up, peak torque at 4200-4400. seein that goin into the next gear the car generally shifts down about 1500 rpm, 5800 seemed the most logical to get to peak torque, and it's workin like a charm.

still won't replace a custom tune tho, i just wanted wat everyone was gettin in the mean time tho

everythin i've seen says that's correct. so far my experience with this car backs that up. since torque is ur actual acceleration, if u shift at max torque, butt loads of acceleration r at the tires, causin them to break loose.

Not if you are shifting when you are not on the step (so to speak) of the torque curve. If the correct amount of torque is not available to overcome the resistance of tire traction, drive-line inertia, et al then the engine will only bog down and what torque there is will be trying to twist your drive-line into a pretzel.

it could be the tires, not sure. it's in D, manually shifting in the auto is just pointless anyways. i'll try the shift at 6k, like i said about 6200, it just didn't seem to get much power after shiftin at that point.

the power definitely feels like it was there, i was just disappointed to not hear any birds back there
What is your rev limiter set at? It's just possible that shifting at 6200 you are on the threshold of the rev limiter and that is the reason your power seemed down after shifting.
I have my rev limiter set at 6500 and my tranny it set to shift at 6000 with the C&L cai and the Predator C&L 93 octane racer tune. I have played with the shift points and rev limits and this combination seems to work best for me.

How many miles are on the tires? And what elevation are you at?

You definitley need a custom tune from someone who knows what they are doing. I have a bit of mods and cant even get traction till mid 3rd(thanks to the 4:10's and a manual) with street tires, the car ran great. I got some advice from our buddies here on this forum and gave bama chips a call. Total night and day. Its like my car went to sleep and woke up and dropped a big pair. It is especially nice w et streets. So get a good tune and youll get what your looking for.

the rev limit in drive was set to 6200 wen i tried that. i dont see anythin about the shift point on here, just rev limit for drive and neutral. there are settings to lower or raise how many mph i'm shiftin at in each gear other than that

ok, update: i got myself a custom bama tune (93 race) and..... nothing. provided after driving it at first i flashed it back to stock, then reloaded the tune to rule out any stock tune remaining. i chirped once on a road w/ bad traction goin into second.

i'm really at a loss. i mean, it's haulin, but i'm confused as to why i'm the one not gettin a chirp on gear changes. suggestions on changin the shift point in the tune or anything?

I don't think you said what tires you have - softer tires don;t always make a high pitched chir sound; and are you dropped to the ground? if you're really lowered by springs alone that could alter the traction characteristics; and is it shifting hard and fast but you are just literally not hearing the "chirp" sound? or is it actually shifting slowly? If it does not shift quickly enough, or you're not getting really good torque converter lockup, you still may need a better tune. Everybody talks highly of Tillman tunes, and I can vouch for Evolution Performance tunes, so maybe you should try one of them if there is no other answer

i have the stock perreli's. i hear that may be the issue, tho i don't know why sometimes i'd hear the chirp n others i wouldn't.

it's shiftin fast n hard, pullin like a freight train and literally not hearing the chirp sound. i'm not lowered either. i went w/ bama cuz i also heard good things about him, especially his experience w/ auto's. i dunno if it's my tune at this point or not, but either way ppl that have the canned tune and bama tunes say their tires chirp healthily 1-2 and 2-3...
