    6800.

    Although if he is stock, power usually starts falling around 5800 RPM's if I remember correctly....but with the stock 3.27 gears, you want to shift at 6800 so when you do shift, you stay within the peak power band.

    Launch conservatively at the track (low RPM's) and when there's wheel-hop...LET OFF before you bust a 1/2-shaft.

    6800 1-2
    6800 2-3
    6500 3-4 (if he decides to get 4.10's or 4.30's)
