Auto to manual transmission problem

I recently converted auto to manual transmission, Honda Prelude BB8.

Manual gearbox (5 speed) is from 1990 Honda Accord.

It is 5 speed auto trans, tiptronic with LSD before converted.

Now car runs slower comparing when it was auto.

It used to be faster than Lancer Mivec, Civic B18, B20, all manual gearbox.

What can be wrong?

Some people said I selected wrong gearbox for this conversion.

FYI engine internal (H22A) is stock with head porting, intake, header, bigger throttle, custom camshaft, exhaust modification.

Re: Auto to manual transmission problem

Re: Auto to manual transmission problem

accords have long ass gears. first gear probably takes you to 60mph

Pretty much got flamed for driving like a jackass and was told to slow down. And I'll be damned, slowing down fixed it.
