Thanks, I set mine at 5800 RPM but I think normal driving shift is probably going tp be about 3000-3500 RPM anyway?

between 2000 and 3000 is good for normal driving and fuel mileage, 3000 + is for spirited driving [8D], and 5000+ is for blowing someone's doors off

2cokeman....I see in your signature that you have 560hp and torque...first is that RWHP or crank..and how did you achieve that....with just a tune...or a CAI and tune....let me know whose tune and what CAi if you dont mind

I set mine at 6000 rpm and haven't hit the limiter yet. Of course now that I have the 93 Octane tune from VMP my limiter is set at 6500 rpm.

Justin at VMP Tuning says that 6500 rpm is the safe limit, but I still shift mine at 6,000 rpm. 6,000 is the highest that you can set the shift tone and light, but at least I don't have to worry about bouncing off the limiter if I am not quite quick enough on the shift since my limiter is set at 6,500.
