Bob;

It depends on how you're driving. These cars and engines do love to be stretched out. Don't be nervous about sweeping the tach towards redline. In fact, the engines are built for this, and it is good for the cars to give them a workout. Think of the engine in the car as the heart in your body. Plus, get that engine going and your heart will follow.

The point of where you shift is to choose where in the powerband you are in the next gear.

If power is what you're after, near redline is your friend.

If its fuel economy, which as I remember engines are at their peak efficiency at their peak torque. In looking at the dyno results posted, the torque powerband is pretty even from 4000-5500 rpm, so this range should work best for fuel economy under acceleration.
