Here is my problem, with a few video clips

So, I wired my vtec solenoid, pressure switch, and knock sensor wires up. They cleared my CEL completely, which is the first time it hasnt been on since the swap :) But when I drive, I still got the tachometer flipping out and it cuts power, gets boggy around 4k rpm. I can feel the vtec engage and pull but its still cutting out and bogging. My aftermarket tachometer works until about 4th gear or after about 10 mins of driving then it just fails. The stock tachometer doesnt fail as long as i stay below 3500rpm, then it starts to go crazy. Here is a couple videos of what it does, and while the tach is flipping out, is when its boggy.

Here is accelerating from in fourth gear.

its hard to tell what is happening, because there is no light try turning you lights on or something so we can actually see the tach

YES.

Also, since your aftermarket tach is on par with the gauge tach, it seems more so...

After trying to attempt to watch those vids, lol, i can say your coil or your distributor.
Coil first for a loose/perturbed plug.
