Shift RPM's by Gear for 700R4 Trans
I'm installing a programable shift light on my new TCI 700R4 trans. Would anyone know what the shift RPM's should be by gear? I'd like to get some bench mark set points before I road test.
Thanks in advance.

i'm guessing you're trans is a Ford product and

you have a 4.6 SOHC engine.

set the shift light at 5000 rpm and

then go up by 100's.

whatever the best time is over a 1/4 mile that

is your shift point.

have a nice day!

Thread title say's it's a 700R4:rolleyes: I have my 700R4 shifting at the engines max advertised HP RPM under WOT which is around 5800rpm.

My understanding is it has more to do with your motor than your transmission. For example, SBC is going to have a different red-line and shift point than a BBC, and you could run either through the same transmission.

id figger where the peak is then go a little past it to let the rpm's be just a little better in the power range when it shifts.
