Boot into AHT (Apple Hardware Test) see what it tells you ( you could have damaged temperature sensors (default in that case is to run the fans at MAX) or other components.

If it is overheating it will slow down. Running the fans that high could drain the battery which will also slow the machine, and kick in power reduction steps (like reducing wifi power) that can slow the machine.

You (or someone else) might be able to replace sensors if not soldered to the logic board, replace the complete logic board (advanced DIY) or repair the damages (not a DIY project).

Good Luck,
