I'm like you as far as RPM is concerned when you run out of torque it's time to shift. I street drive only and have a short track 4 spd with 8:37 R&P and FA,HQ,QQ,WL gear set. I am looking for as little lag as possible and I'm not sure of what I'm going to get with the K28. Thanks for the help.

Check out the zork tube video. I made this zork and was a huge increase in throttle response and some power gain (seat of the pants) over the stock muffler I had. Not overly loud on highway because of wind noise but around town it is trouble.
Also, you may be able to see the boost versus rpm on my tach in this video from Watkins Glen last summer. Look closely at the gages if you have good eyes....the video is not that clear.
