Actually with an AOD, you don't ever put it into OD. Keep it in D and let it shift itself, if you don't have a shift kit. The 1-3-1 shuffle will burn up the transmission if it's done on a consistent basis because it'll dump pressure when it's not supposed to, burning the bands.
There shouldn't ever be a reason to go to OD, it'll kill your time. A stock AOD will usually shift itself around 4800, if you hold it while doing the shuffle and go up to 5500 or higher and then shift, you'll actually go to third. Yes, you can miss a shift with an AOD. The reason is when you go too high in first, when you shift into second the transmission will already be at the shift point to go to third and it'll skip second. I know this, I've done it.
There's a few other tricks to the AOD.
You can put it in first and shift it your self at about 5800, but then when you shift it into second it will shift out of second at around 4500. I found out that after you shift into second you can pull it back down into low gear and it will hold second until you shift into drive. That way you can rev out to 5800 or so in second, instead of 4500. But you can also adjust the throttle valve linkage to make it shift at a higher RPM when you just have it in drive. But that will make it shift higher during regular driving, as well as WOT.
I wasnt sure if it was a common thing everyone knew that has an aod in their pony or not but when I had my Trans rebuilt in my 89 and had a shift kit put in, the guy at the speed shop told me to put it in low, wined it out throw it in D and then back into Low real fast and it shifted into second and chirped and rode out second gear until I threw it in to D for third and then OD for fourth. Anyways I thought I would share that with everyone because it made my pony that much more fun to drive just messing around town. I plan on doing the same thing when I rebuild the 91 vert. I have to say the first time I did it I was worried about winding out the motor to far but with the shift kit it shifted. Anyways thought I would share.
