loss of power in vtec.

i have a untunned obd1 p28 ecu,and ever since i installed it ive notice loss in power in vtec mode.i can take it all the way to redline but feels like the car goes slower and screams alot in vtec.is it because the ecu is untunned and the ignition is not correct or theres something else.thanks
