How to power shift?


I got a 1993 Mustang GT kinda stock. I thought i could shift.......untill i saw this vid. He makes the car sound like an auto with a shift kit!!!
HOW can i shift like this, He says to NEVER let up on the gas but if you look at it you can see his right foot move. Can i do this with a PRO 5.0, BBK clutch cable/quadrent and a stock transmission?

i could be wrong but i thik he's just slamming gear at high rpm without using the clutch. once your that high rpm you can just slam it and it should mesh. i could be serioucly wrong tho haha

thats pretty good but i know i can shift that good too....i move my hands around the same way when i shift. if he is moving his right foot he might be going to half throttle so he doesn't hit the rev limiter......i love the sound of the supercharger.....

Powershifting is just shifting without letting off the gas pedal. You still use the clutch, there is no magic rpm. If you try to shift a syncro trans without the clutch and full throttle, you'll be picking up the pieces for a week.

In general, powershifting is good for like 1-2 tenths at the track and will decrease the lifetime of your transmission and clutch components to about 1/3 of their normal lifetime. Whether or not that is worth it is up to you!

yeah, you can powershift a stock fox mustang if your syncros are still in good shape.

The more horsepower you have, the harder powershifting is on your drivetrain, so you can probably powershift a 4 banger all day long everyday and not hurt anything...well, let me know if anything breaks

I can do it with mine at about 5000 rpms I let off the gas pedal half way slam in the clutch real quick and throw it in third as fast as possible. And the same for fourth I got a hurst shifter wich makes it alot easyer but i dont do it alot only when there is a car that I am running that is not a ricer

Then go out there and do it but if you got the stock shifter without shift stops and the stock throw be carefull because you dont want to over shift it to much I didnt even beat on my shifter when I had the stock one in it. When you buy a short shifter like the Hurst billet plus I have you will take the stock one out and its like sheet metal compared to the hurst base its amazing the difference

make sure when your shifting into 2nd and 4th that your not looking like your starting a lawn mower, nice smooth shifts. Take your time and learn when the best time to shit. I wouldn't recomend going to 6 grand and then shifting you have to do it a lil earlier....

ya double clutching works

it takes a little practice tho

its pretty much not letting of the gas all the way. shifting fast wial doing it it kinda gives your car a push as you shift but it will burn your clutch also...so dont do it tooo much

I've tried several times in my stock 91 at the track years ago between 1st and 2nd. Didn't seem to be worth the beating or risk. Based on the limited amount of street racing I've seen, more people speed shift than don't speed shift and I thought it was very common.
