    there's actually an equation to figure out the best shift point based off your transmission gear ratios, rear gears, and peak torque. For me I shift at, 5652, 5504, and 5410 with my slp 51013 cam and god damn i feel the torque throughout the whole 1/4mile

    what times do you run? since your shifting there?

    do you have a dyno chart of the cam in your car.

    Currently running these times with my mods and street tires
    11.57 @ 120 1.98 60'
    11.44 @ 123 1.87 60'



    Cam only was this on street tires shifting at 6800, since it pulls to 7200
    14.1 @ 106 2.01 60'
    14.01 @ 108 1.88 60'

    When I adjusted my shifting after reading about optimal shift points on cam only I got

    12.71 @ 115 1.90 60'
    12.75 @ 116 1.85 60'

    Check other thread for dyno of my car
