JDM b16a2 rev limiter problems

I have a 95 b16a2 hatch (OBD-1), and for some reason i hit the rev limiter at 7200 rpm. VTEC engages just fine at about 5300rpm in my car but its like 2 seconds before i hit the limiter, so my car is way slower than it should be. Like im around 8 seconds (G-tech) to 100kph when it should be around seven. I was wondering if anyones had this problem, and what the best thing to do is to fix it, thanks.

Thats the problem, is there any way to check, i bought this car with the swap, the guy couldnt be insured anymore so it was a fast sale. But i have no idea, is it possible it could still have the ecu from a d15? how much would it cost to fix my mess if that was the problem? The car does run fine and i havent had one problem in the last 6 months, its just im loseing so much power because the engine doesnt even get to peak hp

i went thru the same thing man..i had no cels..so i assumed it was fine it ended up being a d15 ecu on my b18 found out when i went to tune it lol

theres a code on the side of the ecu..its under the dash near the sidewall on the passenger side..pull out the carpet its under there

and no it shouldnt be a very expensive fix to get the right ecu..or just get that ecu coverted over to a b16 basemap

ya, you are probably using a p28 or p08 ecu, when really you need a p30.
Of course you can just chip the p28/p08 (or whatever ecu it is) and run the b16 program on the chip.

^^ pm zeeman with how much he charges to chip and run a stock map (and a conversion harness if necessary). It's amazing the difference the right ecu/map can do for your car
