I would imagine the best time to shift in the celica is around 4-4500 rpms. I consistantly shifted at 3k (which sucked so bad because i wanted to go faster) did that, and ended up getting 450mi. to the tank. Of course, if you are racing, it will be much higher.

For fuel economy, as low as 3k. For more performance, as high as you want.


300,000 KM/Sec. Its not just a good idea, its the law.
