560SEL when pushing on the gas from a stop, the engine has a delay before taking off

When I push down, there's kind of a fast and light chugging sensation, and then the motor picks up. Could this be caused by a leaking intake manifold?

Pretty sure these cars have a natural delay from when you stomp your foot down till they go, they are not super responsive cars.

It also could be your kickdown switch.

Could be your tranny too.
