:confused::confused::confused:Took the car to the track, and was a bit disappointed. I have a JLT CAI, Professional Products T/B and upper plenum,BBK equal length headers w/ full exhaust, and custom tune The best i could squeeze was a 14.3 ITs a 2000 GT vert I was shifting at about 5200 RPM . Temp that day was about 87. Iread some threads where guys said 6000 was the sweet spot It was my first time on the track. Whats the best RPM for a 2 valve with some bolt ons?:confused:

Take it pretty much to redline and if you are a 5 speed with stock gears you might want to stay in 3rd unless you are running 100+mph.

Did you have it dyno'd to make sure the power was there? What was your trap speed?

My bad, but you get the point. Only thing would be if your losing power because of valve float you'll want to shift a little early. But yeah

I have an 02gt with ud's, o/r x,catback,jlt and i shift at about 6k. I bumped my rev limiter to 6200 so i didnt have to shift into 4th. Before i did that i would bump the limiter just before the traps.
