How much of the CPU time of your application is spent in Lua code?
How much of the CPU time is spent in C/Lua and Lua/C transitions?
If you cannot readily answer these questions then I suggest to
profile your application first.

Umm, which version do you use?

Here's a trivial test:

  local x=0; for i=1,1e9 do x=math.abs(x) end

This should run in a fraction of a second with LuaJIT 2.0, but
will take more than a minute with Lua. It's around 214x faster.
