Red Line for Mustang gt 2007

So I've been a little confused with my cars redline, my cars redline is at 6k rpm however on every site they say the redline is 6250 am I missing something here? Does this mean I can go slightly past 6k before I shift to get the maximum boost?

the maximum boost is made way before the redline...the best way to know where to shift is to dyno the car and see where the hp drops off, then gear the car to keep it in the "sweet spot" as long as possible...or go to the track and try different shift points and see what produces the best results

Redline is marked at 6000, rev limiter kicks in at 6250.

I shift at 6400 which is where i make peak power. Unless you have the right mods you don't really need to shift any higher than 6000 i think
