I was told by my tune guy that the VVT motors still pull after 6000rpms on the HP side, but falls super flat on the torque curve past 5500rpms due to the newer truck manifold. Not the best for performance. He told me that is why it feels dead when I changed my shift points. Anything I did past 5500 got me slower numbers and the higher I went the slower again my performance fell off. He said it is highly recommended that I change my intake out to a 6.1 or 6.4 intake once I get my VVT cam and heads installed. He told me that he will tune it to about 6300rpms on the shift points, with that setup. He said that even with the heads and cam the stock truck manifold is way setup for lowend torque, and this motor will performe much better that way.

I even noticed driving a challenger with the autostick, it shifted at about 6100 1 to 2, and about 5800rpms at all the other gear changes. I was told this is also why he never adjusted the shift points on my custom tune!
Well, i have the same tuner guy as you do and he raised my shift points to about 5900 rpms, highest rpm seen when i data logged was 5949 rpm

But these aren't junkyard motors, they have to live long and earn that title. chefred is one of the few lucky ones who wound up with a good engine build from the start. He's definitely earned his opinion here so I'm not trying to step on his toes but he doesn't have a stock top end. I've always had my suspicions that beating it up and driving it hard toughened them up so I guess ya never know. Sounds a little crazy but it's about the only reasonable explanation I can imagine you doing this, lol!
my motor has never fell off at 6200 I don't know what kinda junk you bought. and ask chris b about me taking my truck to 6500 its pulling hard all the way their. and you don't know me guy just cuz I haven't been on this forum very long don't mean I don't know what im talking about. and you don't worry about how I drive my truck if it breaks ill fix it! they make parts every day!

To the killers out there that are calling me out...first off I didn't say my truck was faster. Second, I was just clowning but since you want to act like a pompous ass I don't care if you trucks run 10's and I run 15's, when you beat me I'll say your truck is faster. I didn't call anyone any names or accuse them of lying or diss their truck so I'd appreciate it if you change your tone of voice when addressing me. I don't run my mouth and I'm not a punk so don't punk me. If I were to ever meet up with someone talking to me like this it won't be to race. I didn't mean to push any buttons so I appologize...for now. That said feel free to push it to the limits, you won't hear anymore out of me about it....Jerry
