Dies when operating tempature is reached,

I had this problem once before,a new coil was put on and it was cured for only a short while.
When cold my truck will run fine but once it reaches operating tempatures it'll shut down for 5-10 minutes then repeat,put in new thermostat,heater core,water pump,hoses and radiator.but problem still is there.
I thought fuel supply was getting cut off but fuel is reaching presure testing valve.
The engine sounds and feels like it's running out of fuel.It just falls on it's face.If I floor it it sometimes will keep running at high rpms.
Any suggestions??

Reads like the TFI module on the distributor is the problem, they can also get heat sensitive like the coil can.
