Help integra wonít go over 4,000 rpm 94 integra LS 1.8 Non vertex

Hey guys, please help my mechanic and I are stumped

óShort version:
-Car idles like itís stuuer or misfire for first 1-2 min then idles fine
-Wonít go over 4000 RPM
-Feels like stuttering or misfiring when pressing on gas peddle a little, enough to maintain a speed if I donít push it runs fine and if I push it a little more like to accelerate it runs great

óLong version below with details:
This is my first post Iím used to having new cars but my dad gave me his integra and IM IN LOVE WITH IT and people think Iím crazy. Itís a 1994 Integra LS 1.8 non Vtec Manuel trans. Iím asking for help because Iíve been keeping really good care of her BUT...... All the sudden I started it and it idled rough for 1-2 min then was fine next I noticed only when I press the gas enough to maintain any speed it would studder like itís misfireing or something about 3-4 times a second THE BIGGEST THING is it wonít go over 4000 RPM in any gear even Neutral it stop and feels like itís redline sometime like it studdering when driving but redline when in neutral. WORST OFF ALL THERE IS NO CHECK ENGINE LIGHT and since itís a 94 there no hook up for the computer I did do the paper lip but go no codes at all. My mechanic whoís amazing and has fixed everything else many other people have failed at in the past or tried to be lame something else and Charge an Arm A Leg AND MY FIRST BORN. This is what Iíve done since the problem
changed oil,
new spark plugs,
new wires,
checked ignition system,

Iíve put a cleaner in there to make sure it wasnít a dirty injector he also did a good inspection

but no common idicators of why itís doing this issue. Things Iíve done since I had the car I. The last year not the issue because car was running fine

New starter
New cap and roator
New exhaust from headers muffler( no clog)
New radiator
New master cylinder
New slave cylinder
New inner tire rods
New outer tire rods
New break pads front
New brake rotors front
New bumper
New tires


Mechanic doesnít think itís things that the computer check engine light would come on for if there was an issue like O2 censer, tps, etc.

Any ideas please help Iíll be eternally great full my integra family

I'm just gonna throw some ideas:

1. Fuel pump going out.
2. Fuel filter is clogged and needs to be replaced
3. Distributor
4. Bad gas
5. Timing is off
6. Low compression
7. Vacuum leak
8. Wiring

Good luck.

O2 Sensor will put it in Limp mode this is why it cuts out at 4k rpm. Also you got a CEL for the O2 Sensor. this I would replace first.

About time I can now apply for Historic Tags for my GS/VTEC Automatic and no more SMOG
