Ok guys thanks for the input. I guess the numbers are decent for what I have. Based on the graph at what point should I shift to get the best times?

it's a damn good curve, got within 15whp of your peak number all the way from 4500 to 6300. I think with a dyno tune you may get better peak numbers more torwards 280 which is where I think those cams should put you with a good tune. but is the cost of the dyno tune worth that much? with the good curve I'd say no just leave it.

for track times get a dr and 12's are available when you get some more practice.

If you've still got a stock midpipe then I think the numbers and a canned tune are good and what i'd expect.

OP, I was once bummed about Dyno numbers on my 13 5.0, then after a while I stopped caring and realized fast is in the eye of the person behind the wheel.

265hp out of 4.6L isn't bad, and those are rear wheel numbers (assuming you dyno'd the whole car, not just the engine) Stock they were getting 210 at the Rear Wheels, so the mods you put in and the numbers are decent for a 4.6L

If you're going to spend money on anything... may I suggest lowering it. Grab some Ford Racing B Lowering Springs... right now it's looks like a 4x4.
