Default red line issue

my red line was at 8900 i have a jdm b18c with a p73 ecu but the other day when i was getting on the highway it knocked me off at 7500 or so. everything is the same i swapped everything from my wrecked 92 hatch to my 95 hatch, could it be a wire i didnt hook up or something i didnt plug in? im also really debating getting hondata this week or next would that be able to tell me or help me? thanks for reading any help is greatly appreciated

Cluster. Eg clusters have known to be in ccurate. The higher mine gets the more inaccurate it gets. My cluster is fine at idle, when it says 2500 I'm really almost at 3k and by the time it says 6200 I'm already at 7400.

X2 on the cluster, if you get hondata you will find out just how off all the guages are in the civics, you got to think how old these things are getting, Before too long everyone is going to be running antique tags on civic hatchs.lol
