Good question! That's not as straight forward of an answer your would think. It really depends on your engine and its modifications. Adding certain airflow mods will change your overall powerband, and allow you to shift at higher RPM's more efficiently.

Now for your particular car, you'll have to tell me more about it. What kind of mods of you have done? Is it a supercharged Saleen or just rocking the Saleen front bumper? Let me know and we'll take it from there!

Cool! You're from Oakley.
Monterey peninsula here.
Looks like you have a V6 so I'm going to say either at redline, or maybe a couple hundred RPM BEFORE redline.
I have a V8 but all, reasonably, stock engines are about the same.
One of the sixers will chime in if there is some "magic" with the 6 cyl that I'm unaware of...

All of his threads make me laugh. At least they don't get out of control.
