Default I need help figuring out what is wrong with my Civic?

When i got it it wouldnt crank but i got that fixed it runs perfect , but when i get it out in the road if i drive it carefully and dont just give it alot of gas it is fine but if i am changing gears and going faster it starts jerking and it goes dead , i have been told it is the distributor , and someone else said fuel pump isnt pumping enough fuel in between changing gears to keep it running... it has headers and a Long air intake on it , it is a nice car needs a lil more work but i need it to be running so i can drive it before i am putting anymroe money into it so please help me find out what is going on with the car Thanks peopleit is a 1992 civic ex, 1.5 all i know is it has headers and intake and the exhaust which if aftermarket it sounds like a crotch rocket.... im not sure what else it has white leather interior ...oh yeah and it is fuel injected...... 192 k miles it runs strong i have driven it to town but it dies like 12 times ...... I need to fix it so i can take it to be painted so i can sell it maybe ....the clutch is fine no problems there at all .... it is something else just dont know 100% for sure please help =)

Year and engine size/type are needed as well is it fuel injected or carburetted? Dual exhaust or single? Any racing mods, like flywheel, pistons, cams etc.?

Check your TPS sensor wires and the voltage...

it sounds like very bad timing...maybe your engine is flooding at higher rpms, maybe not all your cylinders are firing on time, you may want to check your distributor first, take off the cap and inspect the rotor for any cracks also check your cap maybe its not making good contact between cap and rotor...but my best guess your problems are distributor related,

SInce you added headers and a longer intake, you should compesate with extra backpressure with an o pipe.
