RE: [Chrysler300] Upshift RPM CI Torqueflite

I think the LEO’s call that “excessive acceleration” IIRC from the citation I got back in the 60’s w/my 56 D-500!!

I am wondering about this subject of governors as well. On my C I have long felt that my 2-3 shift in particular is occurring before my hemi is tired of winding. The cast iron TF is now on Don Verity's bench, and we have discussed moving to lighter weights on the governor. I don't want to mess too much with the shift points for normal driving, but just want a bit more rev for "spirited acceleration". Does someone out there have experience with having done this? Did you like the result and would you recommend it?

​Does someone know what the standard shift RPM is and what is available for higher shift points?  Also, what is the weight of the governor weights for standard and optional weights?  Thanks in advance for any help given.​
