OK, so with the car at operating temperature, the 1-2 occurred at about 8mph, 2-3 at about 18 mph, and 3-4 was often stacked with 2-3, occurring immediately afterwards, so approximately 20 mph. This is a composite of several attempts. With a cold engine, the shift points were slightly higher, with 1-2 occurring around 12 mph, 2-3 at 22, and 3-4 not stacked with 2-3 and occurring around 28mph. Also, while cold, the shifts are firmer and occur more quickly. As the drivetrain warms, the shifts seem to take longer to complete and are softer. These readings were taken with minimal pedal pressure necessary to accelerate the car.
