check the earth straps between the engine, gearbox and the body.

there should also be a little earth wire from the dissy to the body i think too

check your bottom pulley for the woodrow key starting to give way and knocking the timing out. thats how mine felt when i put my foot down. get a 17mm socket on the bottom pulley and see if it jumps at any point during the two full rotations (clockwise), if it does jump, new key, if not, get it timed up, if still not, check the throttle positioning sensor connector cable hasnt come loose.
