What rpm should I shift at in my 90 GT, no engine mods, to get the fastest acceleration?

Ive found redline to be too high because the turbo doesnt hit as hard. Ive been shifting about 5K or a little less and i seems to be best, cause the revs pop down to about 3200 or so.

Max torque is at 3500 rpm's, max horsepower hits around 4500. You want to keep it kind of in that range. I think you are correct to shift it at 5K, that's where I shift, maybe a little higher for me since I've upped the boost some. My car doesn't run out of breath until around 5.5K, so I shift there. You should try and shift so that you're at 3500 after you shift.
