Frequency of the nonlinear response stays the same as of input. To calculate the phase angle, i used the index value of corresponding frequency in the fft plot and found the value of phase at that index in phase plot. > > > > I think it's right.

All bets are off with Fourier transforms when you are dealing with a nonlinear system.
