how good of shape is the car in? has it been yours? ive seen a few people has neoprene hose in the fuel line before and it gets weaked by the gas and when in full throttle it pinches itself off and closes the line. its a long shot but i wanna give you the non obvious things to look at. hope it helps someone sometime!

Check the fuel system: pressure, filter, injectors

Scan for codes first. Check fuel pressure as well. Those are the first two things you need to do.

Don't just get a new one. Check the voltage of the one you have, it may just need to be adjusted.

That is only checking in the closed position. He will need to check it thru out the travel of the throttle body to see if there are any spikes or drops in voltage. The voltage should rise smoothly as the throttle is opened.

MY suggestions is to go through, and check all of your grounds, make sure they are all getting a good connection.

those are the symptoms i had when a few grounds were in need of repair.

also watch your spark plug wires at night someplace its pitch black.

you should give your eyes a few minutes to adjust to the dark, i could see FAINT arcs when nobody else that was around could see them. it didn't help that they were intermentan either hah.

That is a prime example why to diagnose to repair instead of repair to diagnose. When you start throwing parts at something all you do is throw money out the window.

With that being said, there is no way you can diagnose his problem over the internet and know for sure that the TFI module is his problem. You might be able to offer it as a possible cause but that is it. Things need to be tested.

aight well ill try those things...also i just figured out it only does it once the car is nice and warmed up and about 30-45 minutes into driving it...then it will start to cut out when i get on it..sometimes it comes out of it and runs good but most of the time it continues to do it...so i dont know if that changes things or not...
