Getting the Most out of my 2011 Supercharged `5.0

I have a 2011 Mustang GT Convertible Roush Stage 2 Supercharged.

Running the stock transmission on it and a shorty throw shifter, wondering what you guys suggest for launching RPM's, and RPM's for shifting gears on a 1/4 mile drag strip. I know not all Mustangs are modded equally but given the stock 6 speed transmission and a pretty common supercharger figuring someone might have an idea.

Thanks!

1st you need to know what the "power-band" is for your engine.....then (initially) you want to shift where you do not drop below the bottom of the powerband rpm.....with the blower, I would swag around 3500 rpm assuming the top of the powerband is around 6500 rpm.


For launch, that's all tire contact/bite......
