SN95 Powerband and shift points?

I am just wondering about the powerband of 96-98 mustangs. Where does actual pulling power stop on them? Because When I am just having some fun runs, I notice that it stops the pulling as hard right after ~4000 RPMs So would I benefit from shifting earlier? Or would that put me too low in the powerband, therefore hurting my acceleration? I just have a NPI with full bolt ons, and 3.73 gears.

Most NPI cars get their best times shifting around 5200. You'll have to play with it to find the sweet spot though.

If it weren't for physics and law enforcement, I'd be unstoppable.

Suckage. I've never driven a Non PI 'Stang much. Actually I've only driven one once and I barely remember it. If that's the case, you need to do a PI swap.

Lol yeah its a bummer having all that torque, and then having it cut off. But trust me, its on the top of my list. Haha.
