Question for you guys ...
I roll my car all morning ... stop to put air in tire at a gas station...
I did a quick start and a good pull for 20sec, red light ... when it turn green, check engine pop and car won't go higher then 4000rpm ...
Oil is full and I just replace the oil pressure switch on Monday...

Any ideas?

I would check to see if you threw any codes, could be a v-tec solenoid

If the CEL is on, the only way to really know for sure what code it is is to use a reader. You can buy one fairly inexpensively on Amazon now (cheaper than even Harbor Freight), or you can bring your car to most car parts stores and they'll read the code for you for free. An OBD2 code reader is a must for anyone who works on their car.

Were you certain that the oil pressure switch was bad on your car and the oil pressure is ok now?

I scan it ... Was a Fred solenoid problem ...
Put engine cleaner in it, a good flush, change oil filter for an S2000 one and clean the VTEC solenoid...
No more code and it seem to have more power ...
Oil was dirty and block the filter in VTEC
