Anyone have a list of the top speeds for each gear @ stock redline, excluding 6th? I know you'll hit the speed limiter first. The only one I know for sure is 4th. I hit 132 on the dyno before 6200rpm.

Yep, used my calculation spreadsheet:

1st Gear 46.4
2nd Gear 66.6
3rd Gear 96.5
4th Gear 137.9
5th Gear 164.2
6th Gear 242.0

This is with a 6250 rpm red line

I've down shifted early doing a 0-60 run. I shift to 3rd to hit 60 quicker because the HP and torgue starts rolling off @ 5400 RPM. If I shift into third @ 5400 RMP I pull a slightly quicker time. The problem comes when I hit the breaks, I instinctivly down shift as I am breaking and I am usualy doing @ 80. I have never fully engaged the clutch, just a bounce and awsnit, back to 3rd. I have completely missed the gear and over reved.

You bring up an interesting point. The LS1's power does start to fall off @ about 5500. Anyone else shift there instead of running it to 6xxxrpm? If so, with what results?

On my gtech pro with a stock goat, I can get consistently low 5.3's on 0-60 when i shift into third at 5400. Whereas when i stay in second until sixty in is consistently 5.6's.

The decrease in 0-60mph by shifting to 3rd gear could be the initial jerk that occurs when you shift, and since that happens so close to 60mph, it could be giving a false reading.
