I have been shifting my 383 at 6500-6700 rpms.

What do you shift the wagon at Pandora when at the track?

* 6300 rpm *

And I'm considering backing it down 1 or 200. Going to try it next season at a T&T.

7500 rpm with a BB. Your build, valve train and dyno information will predict your shift points should be. Our SB in our oval track race car is kept 6200 rpm.

Agreed. :yes:

Too many variables go into an aftermarket build to say that any one shift point would be correct for all engines of a given family. Several different things will determine best shift points for a specific setup.

If you are talking about stock engines with a known powerband, then it would be different.

Lets just say with press in head studs a bit too high, with screw in studs and a good valve train especially solid lifter cam not to high. All depends on the build quality.:yes:
