When I floor it off the line, it really is slow to pick up revs - I suspect you could run past it until the turbo kicks in - then you are quickly looking for second, and trying to see over the front of the car
Your turbo is adopted piece from a turbodiesel truck, dated early 70's. Even if perfectly healthy, it is inherently laggy old piece of iron.

Nothing more than that deccel valve doesn't do it's job (and probably nothing to worry about really). CIS doesn't cut fuel on overrun like EFIdoes, thus popping and fire on deccel.
