Now, with that said..... There's no telling where your tach is off. Best advice would be to see where the power falls off on your factory tach, take note and make sure you shift before that so you keep in the power band. On street tires power shifting isn't really going to do that much for other than wear on your trans and components.
Yea I know. We go on pretty deserted roads out in the middle of nowhere when no one is around. Sadly I feel safer doing that than driving to work on public roads. I've been hit twice on the freeway by people texting and driving, swaying into my lane, and my mom got t-boned at 50+ mph and had her car totaled because some asshat didn't yield on a left hand turn at a 4 way, and had a bad shoulder injury. Seeing as we take neccisary precautions and all know eachother I feel I have a greater chance of being killed or hurt randomly than when street race. We know we're putting ourselves at risk, and make sure not to put anyone else, why we have spotters and use radios. And the main reason I mentioned is because I have no idea whether the fact I was on the street would affect where my shift points would be, compared to at the strip.
And I can't honestly tell where my power falls off. It feels like after 5k I'm out of breath, but I've noticed generally that the higher I rev it out the more consistantly quick I am. I was just looking for a general rule of thumb for stock 5.0's. Might have to just do some trial and error.
