1989 Ford Probe GT 4 Cyl 2.2L


car does not get up above 3000 rpms and backs down why?

I own a 1989 ford probe gt Turbo i replace the motor in it and radiator in it after it blew a piston through the side wall. after replacing the motor the new motor doesn't allow me to get above 3000 rpms before it backs down if i am idling it will idle at 500 rpms and has a hard time get up to be able to shift as well as after i shift the car will take a long time to get up to the proper rpms to shift again and tries to bog down from time to time why is this?
