Your ignition timing would cause this. If you dont have the vacuum retard hooked up you will not get the car to accelerate worth a dam until 3500rpm or so when the mechanical advance has come in.
Try hooking it back up and making a run to see what I mean. You wont be able to generate a significant amount of boost until higher gears and heavy load so you should not damage the engine by this little test.
