Ok I drive hondas for years I currently drive a 96 integtype r, I had a 1500 vti hatch before that had similar problem, it had rev limit of 7500 but when I would reach 5000rpm it would kick back automaticly, now straight off I would think most definatly its your distributor. You see when the bearing goes it causes a whole host of problems, plus it contains sensors for engine management and coil. Firstly I cant say for definate that this is your problem, if the car was mine I would reach in under the passengerfoot well, and find the ecu `jump'terminal connector. Basicly contains two wires that you have got to bridge which then allows the ecu to sent the trouble codes to your dash clocks, but normally if there was an engine management problem it should already have displayed an engine check light on your dash which you didnt mention. Also im taking into account that you took the car out of common sense to a mecanic to do a compression test and hopefully rule out the possibility of a blown head gaskit, badly worn piston rings etc etc. Finally I would reccomend you checking the pressure regulator which is located on the fuel rail to make sure it is working, and maybe fuel filter under bonnett and vtec solonoid which you will find near the distributor, a good mecanic can chec to see if these work. Let me know how you get on! Besta luck!
