that is correct. Without a chip my car will shift before it gets to the yellow (5grand, i think) even in performance shift. I keep the car in 2nd and shift it up when it gets closer to the red line (around 6grand). I see better times due to the car staying in a higher rpm'* a lot of power seems to be lost when I shift it to 3rd. Also, my advise (Merlin would tell you different) keep the traction ON.

Stock, the trani will shift at 5500 rpm

With the Intense PCM, if you leave it in D, it will shift 1-2 at 6000 rpm but if you manually try to leave it in 1st, it will shift at 5500 rpm.
If you leave it in 2nd it will automatically shift to 3rd at 5500 rpm.
but if you leave it in D it will shift at 6000 rpm 1-2 and 2-3.
