In my 79 4-cylinder turbo everytime i got on the throttle hard it would sputter and stall. Then it would only sputter between 1000 and 2000 rpms, and eventually it was back close to normal. I'm thinking carbuerator? Any thoughts?

Still hesitant at low rpms. Fuel Filter? Fuel Pump?

I would say carb as well, but I'd check your fuel pressure with a guage while your driving to see if there's a drop while your tapping the throttle.
