So I'm guessing a good shift point is between 5200 to 5800 rpm to get the best acceleration out of the car. DB, have you quartermiled your car yet?? I would be curious to hear how yours did. I'm going to try and run mine at Rockingham next weekend to get some baseline runs... Thanks for the info.

Just wanted to know where in the RPM range you shift with a VR-6 to get the best performance out of it? I need to learn how to drive better before I go Honda hunting, and your suggestions will be appreciated...
Also, what kind of 1/4 mile time and speeds are youall getting out of a relitively unmodded (see Signature) GTI VR-6?? THANKS!!!

I usually shift around 5000 rpm-for acceleration and good speed-I know there is a lot of high-end torque, therefore getting better(faster) acceleration at a higher rmp. I think so at least.
