it depends..if you wanna save fuel, change gears at around 3000 - 5000 rpms..if you wanna race, well, i dunno, shift when it gets near redline i guess..

When I find myself in a position like this, I ask myself what would General Motors do? And then I do the opposite!

If you let off the accelerator and the car jerks then its time to shift. Keep doing that and you'll get used to do it and wont have to think. Good luck thumbsup

Depends on how fast you want to accelerate. If you want to save your motor & gas, shift early. If you want to go like hell, shift just before the fuel cuts out.

Your GT will rev about 400 over the redline before the fuel cuts out. If your driving normal, I would say about 5,000 RPM is a good place to shift.

I didn't know Celica's came in "midnight blue"? grin
