OD feature

OD in a 4 speed limits me to third gear, right?

What are the benefits of OD anyway? I really don't know.
Manual doesn't say jack about it.

OD is the 4th gear. if you turn it off, then you just have a 3spd tranny with the same shift points as before, it just wont go into 4th gear.

OD puts you in a gear that lowers your rpms and improves gas milage. it is very beneficial on the highway. in the city with the stop and go traffic, it can still help if you catch some green lights or you know its in 4th. anytime youre in 4th gear (od) then your engine is not working as hard as it is in the other gears. i believe its a 1:1 ratio at that point from engine to tranny.

bottom line: leave it on all the time. taking it off does not improve acceleration or 1/4 times at all. taking it off however does decrease milage and makes the tranny work harder at the top of 3rd gear

Towing or driving through mountains. I do at the track and when i am chargeing thru the curves in the backroads turn it off. But like Brandon said for better gas mileage leave it on

The v6 will do 105 in 3rd...I know that for a fact, did it sunday. So I don't see where someone would need to cut OD off to make it go faster on the 1/8 or even the 1/4. I had my OD on sunday when I did that so my engine would shift when it felt like it. Just my experience on that one.

I dont have stock motor or Tranny I have a PATC performance Interceptor 4R70W and I perform better. But on a stock car just leave it on you will never get to 4th at WOT anyway on the track in the 8th
