shifting gears, rpms
Does anyone know what rpm I drop to if I run the truck to 5500 rpm and 6000 rpm in first, second, and third gears?

I picked up 4 mph drag racing earlier this year when I bumped up my shift point from 5600 to roughly 6000 rpm. I'm out of the power range at 6000 rpm but dropping to a higher rpm in the next gear puts the truck in higher boost.
If I shift from a lower rpm range within the power band my next gear rpm is lower and less boost when the rpms climb.

Maybe we could have a sticky note for this which would include the various gearing, manual and auto?

N/A and S/C are different I believe. N/A, I turned my best time shifting at lower rpms (5500-5600).

It is probably different for you because of the effect on boost levels.:dontknow:
