Well from what i've been reading, the series one has peak hp/torque much lower than the series 2. So upping the shift points won't help you. Advancing the timing on a boosted application is alot more tricky than an n/a. Mooore heat.
But, i'm sure if you get ur car dynoed and completely fill out the custom chip sheet on gmtuners.com you could see some good gains. This guy seems verrrrry knowledgable.

On the Series 2, aren't you WAY out of your powerband at 6100 rpm shiftpoints? You're killing performance. Your hp peaks at 5200 rpm'*. So it'* falling out of the band by 900rpms and THEN you shift? You sure you want to do that? I assume you're trying to slow your car down for safety?

I doubt GM tuners would do this. He should know where your HP peak is.

Your electric water pump, gaskets, springs, injectors and Ramair......all these things may raise your HP, but did they raise where it PEAKS? Your exhaust MIGHT have, but not by 900 rpms. I see a cam flattening out the curves, but raising the peaks again? No way to tell or guess. You need a dyno.

I wouldn't shift at 6100. Not when you're paying for a custom burn that may be wrong.

So what IS your powerband? I'm trying to save you from some grief. You're the second person with a 95 to have the same idea here......with GMtuners, and without Dyno data. Don't make a mistake with this one. Do it right, or mellow out that shift point.

Well, pay the guy ! I want to see what happens. I'm waiting on you.
I'm too chicken to try it. I've got a list of things I want changed.
I think. Are you getting a new chip or the old one reprogrammed ?

Also, how will a dyno help unless it'* done before and after ?

Well, i asked Zoomer where i should shift at (i told him all of my mods) and he said 6,200 rpms. I chose 6,100 to save my tranny for a little longer.
If your gonna tell me he'* wrong, i just don't know what to do.

Zoomer ain't no dyno. Don't take a chance on cancelling out the rest of your mods. Dyno, or mellow out your forecast on the peak hp rpm. If you overshoot, you're wasting the burn.
