Keep them clean. Shift when the RPM drops to no less than around 3000,and they will be happier. If you put pedal to floor go to at least 6500. Red line is for letting you know you are approaching the rev limiter cut off which may disturb a smooth climb. Getting around seven before getting caught by that mechanical device requires diligence in the lower gears. All this , ONLY AFTER THE OIL TEMP GETS TO NORMAL OPERATING and I might ad do not use it unless you plan on getting up to temp in the first place. That way your motor will last a long time if not previously misused ( interveiwing the previous owners is a good thing) If it has been babied then proceed beyond 5000 RPMs progressively.
