86 5.0L

Anyone know good shift points for a 86 5.0L with e6 heads in the 1/4 mile. I was told around 4500 rpm due to choking of the heads around 5000

That's probably pretty close.
Listen and feel.
When you hear and feel the engine quit pulling, then shift, because from there on you are not picking up much speed, just building RPMs.

Plus these "older" pushrod "stock" engines aren't high revving like the newer modular motors.
