That's turbo lag.
Chech all pipes to the turbo for splits, leaks or squashing.
You may consider a remap if necessary to reduce the lag considerably.

Is this a common problem with a Duratorc engine? I had the intercooler off yesterday and there was a film of oil inside the pipes, is this normal?

All Ford turbo diesel engines have lag, maybe not quite as bad as yours though.
You may want to bung some BG244 engine cleaner through and see if that helps.
As to the oil, sorry i can't comment on that.
I'm sure someone else will be able to throw more light on the matter.

Cive thanks for your help,

Is BG244 some kind of fuel additive & who sells it? i have never heard of it before.
Only top draw fluids and belts used on service.

If you search eBay you'll find it.
I've used it a couple of times and it does what it says on the tin.
It's not cheap but it is worth it.
