Default 95 civic dx weird power loss and erratic engine performance at certain times?

Ive looked around online but nobody seems to have the same problem, similar but not the same. D15b7 automatic new plugs and fresh head gasket, drained and refilled then bled coolant system (no air in coolant) cleaned IACV, oil change and checked all fuses. No CEL codes.

When its idling its pretty smooth, a few pops here and there, when you open the throttle when parked it revs smoothly and doesn't seem to do anything odd.

when driving if I slowly and gradually accelerate, it seems fine (from a stop or just to speed up) but if I try to go even half throttle from a stop it changes its tune, literally sounds like a different engine, it sputters and shakes but in a controlled manner but there is definite power loss for about 4 seconds and then magically it goes back to being smooth and normal.

I haven't put any new parts on yet because I don't want to blow a bunch of cash on something that won't fix it. Any ideas?
