H22A sputtering problems

my car has recently started sputtering AGAIN last time when this happened i just replaced the distributor cap and rotor, plug wires, and spark plugs and it was good as new.
now it has happened again. both my distributor and plug wires are good and i just got new spark plugs but it hasnt helped.
when ever i floor it, it seems like the engine wants to stall. i have no idea what it could be, and there is no check engine light on. i really want to finally fix this frustrating problem, any ideas

Re: H22A sputtering problems

Main relay... my other prelude would do the same to me when i had to replace it.... The Main relay wont ALWAYS trip the check engine light, especially when its going out
