    Best shift point

    I did a search but really didnt find much on the 2011-12's. What seems to be the best shift point in these things? Its still stock right now. I might be going to the track with it soon. So far 6200 seems to be the best from what Im feeling.

    I hate starting all over again on cars. LOL. I know the Dodge stuff like the back of my hand but im starting all over again with Ford.

    I thought all engines were the same and at the top of the powerband before it starts to fall of. Every car is different.

    I shifted my 2011 Shelby GT500 at 6000. Just felt right to me and the car was starting to "plane" off at that RPM.

    As close to 6200 without hitting the rev limiter should work the best

    Just curious why did you trade the Challenger? I ask because im an old Mopar guy and traded my Charger SRT8 for my first GT 500. Mine was a 6.1 but I heard the 6.4 is a much better motor

    The 6.4L is a damn good engine and runs great. BUT, There is no tuning for them and who knows when it will happen. Even if there was tuning, I still would have traded to the GT500. The Mopar stuff is a pain to mod and not much aftermarket stuff. The Ford has so much aftermarket support its not even funny.

    I had a 2007 Procharged SRT8 Charger for a while. It was a fun car but it was a ticking timebomb. Never knew when the ring lands on the pistons were gonna pop.

    I traded my Cherokee SRT8 for my GT500. I never realized the lack of aftermarket support until I started looking into the GT500. There is no comparison of the two. I still remember the motto as well: There is no replacement for displacement!

    Yes I heard Chrysler still hasn't unlocked the code for tuners. That's insane. At least with the 6.1 Diablosport had all kinds of tunes.
