I am wondering why you would change shift points ? In drive mine changes gears right at 6000 rpm's . I do not think you would want that to be any higher ? I can't complain about the firmness , if I do a full throttle to second it will chirp the tires , or if I kick it down to first at 25mph it will break them loose .
What else have you done with HPP3 ?
The HPP3 ONLY works at full throttle. It adjust the tranny at partial throttle only due to changes in gear ratio or tire size. It WILL affect full throttle shifting. It raises the RPM in which the car shifts.
Im not sure exactly what the top speed is stock, since i never tried it while the car was stock. The highest i have seen on mine is 172. It prolly had a couple more mph in it, but i ran out of safe road distance, and that was with the current mods of HPP3, MTI ram air, and 160 thermostat. Everything else was stock. That is also an A4, 2.73 gear. I would imagine the 3.15 auto or the 3.42 stick would be a few mph faster.
That top speed was also in 3rd gear, never will hit 4th unless you let off
