I departed runway 24 in teb; and climbed on the teb 5 departure. The departure winds were 320/15g20. As I rotated; windshear was immediately evident; and from 500 ft AGL; there was moderate chop. I received an early heading from departure of 280 degrees over a noise sensitive area. While I attempted to fly the departure procedure; and reconfigure the aircraft for climb; I inadvertently climbed 400 ft above the mandated altitude of 1500 ft. I recognized this and immediately descended to the proper altitude. Approach control then cleared me to climb to 6000 ft. Factors contributing to this altitude deviation were improper attention to altitude from the pilot due to the windshear; moderate chop; early turnout from ATC; and reconfiguration of the aircraft.

Title: BE58 PILOT REPORTS ALT DEV ON THE TEB 5 DEPARTURE; CLIMBING TO 1900 FT BEFORE CORRECTING BACK TO 1500 FT.
Narrative: I DEPARTED RWY 24 IN TEB; AND CLIMBED ON THE TEB 5 DEPARTURE. THE DEPARTURE WINDS WERE 320/15G20. AS I ROTATED; WINDSHEAR WAS IMMEDIATELY EVIDENT; AND FROM 500 FT AGL; THERE WAS MODERATE CHOP. I RECEIVED AN EARLY HEADING FROM DEPARTURE OF 280 DEGS OVER A NOISE SENSITIVE AREA. WHILE I ATTEMPTED TO FLY THE DEPARTURE PROCEDURE; AND RECONFIGURE THE AIRCRAFT FOR CLIMB; I INADVERTENTLY CLIMBED 400 FT ABOVE THE MANDATED ALTITUDE OF 1500 FT. I RECOGNIZED THIS AND IMMEDIATELY DESCENDED TO THE PROPER ALTITUDE. APPROACH CONTROL THEN CLEARED ME TO CLIMB TO 6000 FT. FACTORS CONTRIBUTING TO THIS ALTITUDE DEVIATION WERE IMPROPER ATTENTION TO ALTITUDE FROM THE PILOT DUE TO THE WINDSHEAR; MODERATE CHOP; EARLY TURNOUT FROM ATC; AND RECONFIGURATION OF THE AIRCRAFT.
