It makes no difference. Any difference in acceleration is in your head.

Your transmission is a 4 speed, the 4th gear is overdrive (less than a 1:1 ratio). Turning it off simply prevents it from shifting into 4th.

Really? That's crazy I had no idea. I didn't know. I mean it sort of darted off but I guess its in my head, it put the rpm gauge up at 3 grand would that not equate to a greater.acceleration rate? Or do I have it backwords

I've heard many people recommend to turn it off during wide open throttle. They say the OD band is weak and can break.
