Default i need help getting my '86 honda prelude running?

i have a 1986 honda prelude, 1.8,i replaced the engine and cant seem to get it running...vac. lines are right

it idles HIGH RPM's but as soon as its put in gear, it stalls unless i put my foot on the gas...and it also has a hard time starting, like the choke is not working right...any ideas?

Have your new engine tune-up first, change oil, oil filter, fuel filter sparkplugs,. Check also your rotor and ignition if they are working properly. Check also the timing. Hope this helps!

stalling - id say its the transmission. Starting id say check the battery, alternator, and starter assembly.

Its probably your air/ fuel ratio its not getting enough gas or air i had a car that use to do that, you might want to get it tuned
