Can someone let me know at what rpm they are shifting at? Thanks.
These engines, being OHC and same bore as stroke, love high RPMS. **** at High rpms, once you feel like your car isnt as accelerating as hard, shift, see if it accelerates harder or slower after you shift.

Id keep it above 4k for sure, but every cars different so just learn where your car likes it.
