I swaped a b18a into my 91 crx a couple of months ago. It runs fine, but the first gear acts like a granny gear. You can rev it up but its not getting much faster. Now, when I put it in all the other gears, it then takes off. I was just wondering if anybody else has this problem? Its not that bad, but if the tranny is bad, i would like to know

I don't know if this will help, because people don't like to do it. But me and my dad made my shift linkage from the stock 91 integra linkage. we had to measure it and then cut around three inches of the middle off and then weld it back together. Since the linkage is not a straight pipe, you can mess up easy. Now what motor mounts are you using. If you are using something other then hcp mounts, then that might be your problem.
