    You gotta get a shop manual first so that we can check the sensors that aren't hooked up / broken. That poor thing is OBD2 a.k.a. garbage because nearly everything on the engine is monitored by sensors. I think it may have something to do with the distributor because I had the same prob in the hatch till I changed it. Running a VTEC engine with the CX dist. just sounds funny. Get a manual though... might be able to re wire the CX harness to run the VTEC dist.
