6000 works best for me. By the way, nice icon. I still watch DBZ, being the big kid that I am.

I think 6000 is a good shift point. I hate the stupid 5th gear, it doesn't seem to matter how far you run the rpms up 5th is just a dog. I left it in 4th one time to see how it pulled, it made it easy to 100mph just over 6k. Can't go to much fast anyway. (108 limiter)

Only a genius drives his mildly modded focus around at 115 mph hoping to do 130 mph. Oh well, better gear up for another FJ fund drive.

Each car is different, so shift point will be too. Even for modded cars. You just gotta get out to a strip and run it till you're happy with it or get it on a Dyno. Personally I'd rather feel it out at a strip then have a machine do all the work for me. I guess its more of a pride thing for me.
