Ok...I have now pulled the governor and added weight.

Before and after RPM shift points

1-2 shift. Was 6000 RPM, which is on the rev limiter. Need to let off to shift
2-3 shift. Was 5900 and stayed right at 5900.
3-4 shift. Was 5900, and dropped to 4700.

So.....I am not sure how I can use the governor to move all of the shift points. Seems that the governor is having a big effect on higher gears. If I continue to add weight, I will lose a reasonable shift point in the 3-4 shift.

Also, I "could" simply lift a little during the 1-2 shift, but I plan on a nitrous shot that will rely on a micro switch detecting WOT, so lifting isn't what I would like to do.

Really looking for some ideas here... Thanks in advance.
