Default why my car lags or boggle when i press on the gas?

..sometimes my car lags in gear 1, 2, and three....that is it won't accelerate as i press the gas pedal...like it boggles, then....after several seconds, it would go..or sometimes i would have to shift to between gears for the car to get going as it should....

how come first gear doesn't accelerate or pull as hard as second when i really try to take off on the car? it revs really fast on first which prompts me to shift to 2nd.....

B20z swap in 98 hatch

my fuel line seems to running smoothly, no throw off sensor is showing, i'm running straight pipe so no exhaust issues...my timing belt position should be okay since i never open it up since i bought the engine...

what's tp? throttle position? well i'm using my stock ek dx throttle cable and custom bracket to hold it ...can that be the case?
