its pretty much what it sounds like, shift at the optimum points and do it quickly so you dont lose much speed/time.

Powershifting is when you shift really fast and never let off the gas pedal. Very hard on driveline....especially synchros & blockers etc. Not recomended unless you have $$$ and time to waste.
