The kickdown to the transmission proabaly needs to be adjusted. It's
connected to the the throttle linkage by a cable which pulls on cam
inside the transmission.

If you refiited the SUs to the SD1 engine then it should be a simple
job, but if you have also moved the EFi system from the SD1 then the
linkages will be ina different place and may require the cable to be
reattached or replaced with one of a different lenght
