Default acceleration problem

i swapped a b18c into my 93 civic. finished it up and took it for a test drive. it idle's fine at about 500, but when i try to accelerate in 1st gear i get nothing....the car doesnt stall, but it doesnt accelerate nor do the RPMs go up. it eventually goes, but after about 2-3 seconds of holding the gas all the way down. this only happens in 1st gear. no ecu codes either. need some quick assistance...

so the car is bogging? what ecu are you running? I'd probably double check all my wiring. It kinda sounds like something is not reading correctly with the ECU. but that's just a guess.
