Instead of just changing parts, do some troubleshooting. Remember this: On Honda, when checking spark use a spark testing tool to test for spark. An open circuit can blow a Honda coil. Second, do you have a fuel pressure gauge you can put on the car? If not, can you rent a scanner from Auto Zone? An O2 sensor will not prevent an engine from running. Even if it is disconnected, the engine will run in an open loop mode. Basically running rich but running.
