Thinking about gears; question about OD

2010 4.0 V6, AT bone stock.

Thinking about 3.73 or 4.10 gears - I'll research that later.

My question is about the OD on the auto trans - is it just the placebo effect or is there a difference in the other gears as well? It feel different going through the gear changes - faster - when the OD is off. My 'butt dyno' says there is more acceleration throughout the curve.

I've seen this referenced somewhere, before I bought the car while doing my research then - but I cannot locate it now. I want to take any additional differences into account when deciding what gears to get.

I wouldn't be surprised either way.

Only thing overdrive does is lock out your top gear.
