I always get a kick out this topic, because of a discussion on the Corral. Same topic, got very, very, serious. Spread sheats of dyno runs and all sorts of approximent integrations. What happened is because of the shape of this guy's power curve and the somewhat funky gearing of Mustangs, calculating the ideal shift point based on different techniques (area under the power curve, area under the engine torque * gearing curve) over a 4 gear run, resulted in significantly different "ideal" shift points. Oh well, the guy ran an 11.8 with low 300s rwhp at full stock weight, so I guess he figured it out.

Wow, that post was full of usefull info. Master G. (that I won't remember). I wish I had a brain that could retain information because then I could impress people when they asked me stuff like that.

Apparently he didn't read it while sitting on the pot... I would guess he has a Trapper-Keeper...
