Just some feedback from outside the Honda community. I try to maintain a steady 83 load in my Scion xB during pulses. That similarly requires an increase in throttle pressure during pulses. I try for 1500-2500 rpm in low speed pulses.

I also glide in neutral, engine on, at freeway speeds. I have to push the engine to 3000 rpm in top gear pulsing, because my transmission is geared too low (3200 rpm @ 60 mph).
