I bought a MSD 6TN plus rev limiter. I think I will be shifting at around 6000rpm, what RPM chip do I use for the rev limiter?

Thanks,

If you're racing it and the 1-2 shift comes up real quick, you may want up to 500 rpm difference between the shift rpm and the "chip".

But for a street car 200-300 is just right.
