I try to shift at the peak of the HP before it starts droping which is around 6100-6200 rpms. If you look at most of your dyno sheets you will see that your peak HP is not at 6500 rpms. I was always told to shift on the way up for optimum performance.
If I remember correctly GMs numbers are at 6000 rpms.

On a road course, drag strip, or when I want to get on it, I shift at redline. I've been told that this is best as it puts you in the fat part of the power band in the next gear. On the 1-2 shift I shift a hare early since that one comes up fast.
