Default What will provide better acceleration?

I have a 2009 Civic EX. I'm wondering what would provide me better acceleration from standstill till like 80mph:

1. I floor the car starting in D.

2. I floor the car starting in D3 and keep it in D3 all the way up till 80mph.

3. I floor the car starting in D1 and make my way up the gears (D2, D3, and finally D)

The last 1 your holding the gears. Then change just before redline.

Leave it in D unless you have a tachometer.

On a Honda Transmission It makes absolutely no difference what you put it in. It shifts at red line and starts in first gear regardless of what you do. The only purpose of 1, 2, D3, and D are for snow and engine breaking.

You can buy a Power RevoFlash 3.It can increase horsepower,but i do not konw whether to suit your models.You can see the product specific information.

Do a car only need 10 minutes
Only need put the SPP cable to the socket of diagnostic in your car and open the software REVO INCLUDING SOFTWARE AND HARDWARE(SPP ADAPTER) ,IN THE SPP
ADAPTER INCLUDING 7191 POINT and it do a car need 799 point,so every SPP adapter can do 9pcs cars.
