    RPM Shift range

    I have a 1996 Trans Am and I still have the stock cam in it. I was wondering if anyone know the best RPM number to shift at when racing on the quarter mile. All I have done to the car is put 4.10 gears, LT Headers, straight exhaust to bullets, PCM tune, 28# injectors. The car has a T-56 by the way. If anyone can help me I would appreciate it.

    I have found that the best range for it to shift in is around 5600-5700 in first and 5850 in the rest. if you had a hot cam I would say 6200 in all of them. that's why I am getting one sometime. lol.

    Yup. 5600-5800 is a good shift range for a mostly stock car.
