Could be a "weak" fuel pump, plugged fuel filter or bad plugs or wires, process of elimination. have a mechanic test the fuel pump pressure through the fuel rail and see what happens.

Car starts running rough at idle, eventually quits running. Has new plugs, wires, cap, fuel pump, fuel filter, air filter, IAC Valve, and gas cap.

Back then, Honda suggested timing belt replacement every 60,000 miles. If your Honda has that much mileage or more and has never had the belt replaced, now may be the time.

Rough idle rough acceleration

I just had this problem, check the secondary resistance across the spark plus terminals on each coil. We had 0 resistance on the top coil in the pack, replaced with a good one and all was fine.

Sputters up hills and when rpm's a less than 2000

Sounds like a problem with the fuel supply either a blocked filter or more likely a failing/failed pump. Park somewhere quite and put ignition to position 2 (not starting position). Listen at the open fuel cap and mid way down the car and then under the hood. It should be possible to hear both the tank lift pump and the main pump running.

Rough idle, Car shakes, sputters and misfires upon acceleration

It sounds like you may have a problem feeding the fuel to your engine, I had the same problem with my 89 RS. All the 1989 model's fuel systems were recalled. I think you may need a new fuel pump. The fuel pump is located inside the gas tank in the rear of the car right under the rear axle. The fuel pump itself isn't too expensive, but with other small parts such as the electrical harness upgrade and fuel filter and the labor you should be looking somewhere in the $500 range. I hope this helps.
