Dying sixer?

Hey everyone ive looked at this group for the past year for things about my sixer and finally took the time to register and all the goodies.
Anyways last summer I had a bad problem bout my sixer dying while driving it. It did only during the summer on hot days. It wasn't overheating but was really warm not to mention all the heat around it from the summer days. I replaced wires, plugs, the coil pack, air filter for my c.a.i, thermostat, and a few other things and it still did it. I don't know if it was just from where it was so hot outside or what. I figured it was cause it's the only time it's ever done it was on the hot days then. Any thoughts?

first off let me say Welcome!!

is your car picking up any codes ?
is it leaking from anywhere?

to me it sounds like a fuel delivery problem or since u say it happens on hot days, a electrical problem.
maybe your o2 sensor ?

My c.e.l has been on since I put the c.a.i on but the code mentioned possible o2 sensor.

Do you think it could be the capacitor located near the coil pack?

I'm just trying to get it fixed so it doesn't happen this summer. Any ideas where I could get the capacitor at? I know the salvage yard may have one. Or should u go with a new one?
