You would only want to rev the engine up in neutral when you are down shifting not up shifting.

With mine I reach shifting speed (40-45), throw out the clutch then shift immediately into OD. The trans oil temp changes after warms up so shifting pattern/timing will change. One truck I had required immediate double-clutching (no pause) then shove it into od.

It would be wonderful if someone would have new gear sets made. I know I would buy one. Helical cut gears would be a great bonus.
