Help me please rough idle, powerloss, backfiring

Ok one I was driving my car all day, I left it to do a couple off things and then came back to drive it I was low on gas but I always am, I was having a little fun with a miata so I down shifted to 2nd from 40 and took off to coast to a redlight, after that I tried to race it from a dig but when I took off it was like taking off in 3rd gear no power sluggish very weak. I have bien driving the car for a week or to like this easy to drive normal until 4k when it seems like its not trying almost like its cutting off, vtec will kick in when its supposed to and car will feel the pull then when vtec ends it goes back to back firing, we thought my timing belt skipped a tooth cause its the SAME symptoms I read online, but we went ahead and changed timing belt cause it looked like a hole in it, timed it and nothing changed, mechanics gave me a list off things but im about to give up it things tried we
Compression fine
Spark plugs and getting spark test are good
Ecu swap from working car nothing
Distributor swap nothing
Timing belt change and time nothing
Unplugged msd nothing
Map censor unplug nothing
No check engine light
Its an 94 prelude with a h22a4 from a 97 obd1 car obd2 motor

You should check your timing.

Could be a timing belt.

Pretty much got flamed for driving like a jackass and was told to slow down. And I'll be damned, slowing down fixed it.
