I don't know anything about honda specificly.. is that a single ignition coil with a distributor? coil packs? coil-on-plug?
in a car with a single ignition coil, a bad coil will cause the same effect.
more specifically, a coil that is "going" bad. under high loads, it requires a lot more electrical energy to fire the plugs and puts the coil under higher loads and can aggravate a marginal situation.
