    Just my own experience, but when I use ECT the converter does not lock out. When I take inclines or freeway merge I will run OD-off and ECT-off, and I will get more power when the converter locks at about 53MPH. But ECT is good for coming off red lights etc. as it holds out each gear to a higher RPM, bringing its 4000+ lbs. to cruising speed easier and quicker..hence slightly better city mileage.
