Icon9 NO power, it's almost like it gags...

I have a 1990 prelude. Manual transmission, 2.1L DOHC and FI.
I bought the car originally thinking it had a blown head gasket. I ended up taking off the head and finding that one of the the third Cylinder exhaust valves had a chunk missing.
Once I replaced that I got the car back together and it runs great on idle but once I try and rev i get a very slow reaction, like it's gagging. When I looked at the code that the ECU flashed it told me that the TDC was the problem. I ended up replacing the entire distributor and the problem still persists.

When I first give it gas in neutral, it chugs. Once It's past approx. 1000 RPM it accelerates fine.

When I put it in gear and try and drive it, it stays in gear, but seems to struggle to accelerate. It accelerates VERY slowly. When in second, it chugs and accelerates slowly, same with third, fourth and overdrive. It's like the more gas i give it, the slower it wants to go.

The ECU isn't flashing anymore. I don't know what to do. Any Ideas?
