    Hi All:

    ___Gary sent me this FEH/MMH Torque curve for clean up and upload. Although not a perfect rendition, the rotation, brightness, contrast, and gamma adjustment cleaned it up pretty good.

    2005 - 2007 FEH/MMH RPM vs. Torque Curve

    ___Notice the slight flattening around 1,750 - 1,850 RPM and again at ~ 3,000 RPM? Gary pivots around that 1,800 RPM accel when it is clear to do so IIRC. I would park the accel rates of the FEH/MMH there too if it were me. 3K on the tach seems a bit much but for a full blown P&G with pack permissives allowing ICE-Off to EV via LGA - N - D in cooler temps, I would try it to see what happens there as well?

    ___Good Luck

    Thanks Wayne

    That was nice of you to clean the photo up also. Well, my secret is out now thanks to you.
