Question What is the red line in a 1999 up GT

This seems like a dumb questions, but I often read here people shifting a red line, which they claim is 6K. But on my tach, the red line is 5750 RPM??

I shift right at 6000 rpms. My power curve peaked at 5k with 234 rwhp, but is pretty flat from 4400 to 6000. It made 220+ in that range. My vote is to shift at 6k.
