94 gt losing ignition fire-HELP

my 94 gt shuts down after extended run time. no fire. it has a new msd coil, cap, and rotor. it has a new pole pick up in the distributor. i have replaced the module also. after it sits for a half hour or so it will fire right up. i am researching the module controller that bolts to the overflow jug bracket. i need some input before i spend the $205.00 plus tax for this relay module at advanced auto parts. i just recently installed a new cam, cold air induction, under drive pulleys, throttle body, headers, and a new shifter but the car was acting up before and after the new parts.

Sounds like the ignition control module, I know you said you replaced it but I've seen brand new parts come defective.

Yes. The first one I bought from the autoparts was an aftermarket and it was bad. Went and swapped it for a FoMoCo and paid the extra and it worked great. I learned my lesson on ignition parts. Only buy brand.

Are you charging sufficiently? UD pullied are usually bad news. Improper voltage could cause this.

charging system working properly, has over amped alt. nothing hooked up to the coil wires or anything else. i didn't have this problem until i changed the parts. it acts like the coil is shutting down. as soon as it cools down, about 30-45 minutes, it will fire right up and run another 3 days or so.

well i took the msd coil back and exchanged it and put the relay control module on it and guess what. it quit again in about the same place as the other 2 times.
what the heck could be wrong with this car? its killing me. i can't even chance it to go out of town to visit my 84 year old dad.

Amen to that!! Went through 4 "new" auto-zone distributors before I got one that worked longer than a few days.
