just swaped an h22a automatic transmission engine into a 97 base manual, HELP!!

Hey:
some crooked mechanic told me he could swap the engine of my 97 base prelude( I believe it was the h22a model, with 377,000 kms) for the same model of engine with 90 000 kms on it, what he didn't tell me was that the engine he ordered from an automatic honda prelude from who knows what year,I found out about this from someone else, anyways once i paid half of the money for him to order the engine, he said it could be done in one day, those days turned into 1 week and half. They swapped the engine, it would run but, when it hits a certain speed, around 60 km/h it wont go faster than that unless I'm on 5th gear it would increase to 90km/h but wont go anything over that, it just starts stalling but continues driving as a slow dow, shifting is okay the car drives fine but not with the power of a VTEC engine. I know they cant find the problem and thought it was easier than they thought, i was really ripped off paid $1300 for engine and labour, he wanted to add $500 more to buy pieces that could solve the issue, I took the car with me, drove it home as is, took the warranty from the company that sold me the engine just couldnt wait no more i wanted to bring it to a specialist or perhaps find help around here

Thanks for reading

Sounds like he forgot to.hook something up. you can use a moor from an automatic into a manual. its actually better cause you don't have to worry about the motor being downshiftted into thwarting wrong gear plus they only have 4 gears.

if he transferred all the parts over correctly, then it should be running just fine. is the check engine light on? if so, see why its on. suppose to.change over through oil pump, crank sensor, dizzy, motor harness, and injectors in order to keep it obd2.

hey, its your ECU on the engine probably bro. The ecu on an engine off an auto is different than the ECU from the manual, swap that and you'll most likely be good. You can find used ones for about $100.

My 97 was doing the same, but its 5speed. Turned out it was the crank sensor
