Question about 6 speed

Just bought my second mustang. My first was an 08' gt 5 speed manual. I have been shift my '13 at 3500rpms is that about right? I would shift my 08' at 3000rpm and cruise in whatever gear it was at about 2000rpm.

Sounds about right. However I have had my 2011 since last June and my shifts are overall smooth from 2000 rpms and up.

Haha, absolutely. Realistically though I shift about 1900 rpms for a regular one gear shift or 2250 if I'm skipping gears
