I got a 94 civic hb with a b16 jspec jackson racing ingnition and the coil with the rev limiter stage 3 kevlar clutch and the normal bolt ons but when Im driving in 3rd gear around 2500 rpm my car begins to spit and sputter when I punch it and the exhaust sounds like it wants to go but it wont I think it may have something to do with the ignition or the spark plugs a couple of days ago I was pulling hard and now it almost feels that my 4th gear is harder than my 3rd. It all started when I let my friend drive it and he hit the rev limiter by mistake and it was doing a similiar problem but it was at 5500 rpm but I reset the rev limiter and it also is only suppose to work in the first two gears he also was riding my clutch hard and now my clutch picks up like a normal car which it is still good I hope but before all I had to do is move the clutch a inch and the clutch would pick up I need some help so I can fix this shit over the weekend its ok because his car is almost to the point were he is gonna loose a cylinder

Sounds ignition-related to me, although I can't say which component. Maybe the plugs are fouled you could clean those and gap them see if it helps, check the cap/rotor for wear or corrosion. How are the wires? It seems strange though that you have problems in 3rd but not in other gears. Are you getting any CELs?

I dont see why you upgraded your ignition...its negligible not unless you're running a high c/r N/A or FI engine

Stock ignition is more than sufficient

Ya I agree with that

Any ways have a friend come over to help you with this

Start your car
With car running pull off the first plug wire and hold it up to one of the valve cover bolts “does it make a good spark?”
Repeat for all plugs “one at a time”

If all looks good have your friend rev the car up and hold it at high RPM and repeat the above if it still looks good its most likely a fuel problem
