We don't send any 7500RPM tunes out, because we don't feel that last few hundred RPM are doing anything for you (and dyno results back that up). We run 10.93 with a baby shot of nitrous (100 shot), CAI, 4.10 gears and exhaust with our 2011 automatic, shifting at 7300 RPM.
10.93? Is the happy gas car to which you've referred a V6??? This makes no sense to me, unless you've referred to a GT.

If a V6, then show us a video!
