I'll make a video - it was almost to 7k after the tune. The redline indicator is showing at 6k on the tachometer.

Here is my first take a at a video - it wasn't the ideal situation for pushing the car hard, but I did go over 6k. I'll try to get another one.

Thumbs up

The auto wants to shift at 6K, try manually shifting in S mode to see how high it goes.

I tried this - same behavior. If I'm driving easy, it will take it exactly to 6k and shift. If I stomp on it, it will take it to about 6300 - as per the start of the video.

The other thing for me about the tune is that I really like how things are with the idle now and the delivery of power above 3500 rpm
