Youll actually run quicker times if you shift down around 6500-6700 if your still on the stock turbo.

Even my talon with an EvoIII and FP2 cams runs better shifting around 7200rpms, and it has way more up top than stock.

Sorry to get off topic here for a second, but Dallas J do you think the FP2x cams would be a bit overkill for a 'well supported' (116-118mph) Evo III on a 2.0?

The requirement of dual valve springs would obviously make them a much more expensive choice, but I would think these cams would also help more if one were to eventually go to a green, 3052, etc.

The regular FP2s are pretty much over kill on a car with an EvoIII :p.
Remember these cams are about the same top end power as 272's, and Shep ran 9's, or was it 8's?

abqdsm: Youre probably fine up to around 6800-7000. Best thing to do though is go to the track and try several runs changing the shift point each run.
