Default Cortex shift points?

I want to see if anyone has any good suggestions on what the best shift point settings should be on the Cortex 3865.

Yea, it was well worth the money. The power I got out of it was crazy for less then 10 mins of my time plus I have bigger tires so I was able to adjust the speedo. With stock tires I could burn them off and too top it off the cortex has a warrteny with it a good plus in my book

The K&N and the Flowmaster helped a lot with the mpg's. When I first got the truck it was getting 12-13 mpg city and now I'm getting 15-16 city with 93 oct. I did drove for Detroit to San Antonio 4 times and at one point I hit 22 mpg on a tank.

So yea very happy with the whole set up and it works great. Defiantly will buy one for any other trucks I have.
