I accelerate pretty much the same on the elantra and TDI. For the TDI, I just make sure I don't boost too much. I try to accelerate at no more than 50% of max boost, so I stay below 10 psi, and rev it around the max torque peak, which happens to be the lowest bsfc point and is conveniently situated at 1750 rpm.
