Accelerator Sweet spot?!

Has anyone else noticed a sweet spot when hitting the accelerator? When I have mine about 1/3 of the way down, it feels almost as if it is as fast, or faster than WOT. Anyone else notice the same thing?

Yes I have noticed that,

Its because right in that area is about 2000 rpm

Which if you read the dyno charts it tells you the torque peak is from 1900-2200 rpm which is what the diesels do best.

Yeah, I've noticed it too. Just the right spot on the go pedal and it really puts you in the seat!
