to save gas man. it lowers the rpm's....well thats b/c its another gear.

if you have an auto you dont really need to turn it off to race. the computer wont put it in od when you are at full throttle...unless your going like 150 or something

Agreed... no reason to turn it off

The shop that dynos mine locks it into third gear to do the pulls but the computer still tries to shift into overdrive at 127 mph so he has to do somthing to get around that (I not sure what).

96 GT vert, Aftercooled Vortech, Lightning MAF,42# inj, saleen cams, Bullitt intake, tune by APS, powerpipe, Magnaflow catback and O/R xpipe, Cobra brk upgrade, lowered bilstein suspension w/MM c/c plates and subframe connectors 3000 stall and 3.73's
