Bad Pickup Coil in Distributor?

My '94 Mustang is still cutting out for a short time when hot, then it comes back and runs normally. Would the pickup coil in the distributor have heat related problems like that? Other ideas?

Still need to check the grounding points, the ignition module is new.

yes.. my pick-up did that exact thing.. the ground was insufficient and when it heated up, it didnt make a good ground and cut out.. i replaced it and im 5x5 now.

If that isn't it, it could be the TFI module. Here is some test you can run.............
