I change at about 6500-7000rpm, but that's just me. I love the feeling and the sound of a high reving 240.

freez, is it stock?

The cam dictates your power range, the stock cam peaks hp at 5500 rpm and torque around 3800 rpm. You want to shift at a point that will put you right back into your power band with some rpm left to pull. I wouldn't take it much past 6000 as the stock motor really doesn't breathe all that well past 6K.
