Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

Odds are you have a loose front suspension component. If it's pulling under acceleration it's most likely because thrust angle is changing. A complete inspection of the front steering and suspension components should be done. A loose lower control arm bushing allowing the control arm to shift under acceleration would be the most common cause for something like this.

It's possible that the issue could be in the steering rack itself but that isn't very likely. With the front end supported you can raise engine RPM's to see if the steering wheel moves, if it does turn when raising engine RPM's then there is an issue in the rack but that is very uncommon.
