Default Car Dies While Driving (Help!) TFI?

1995 Mustang GT 43k miles

After searching the net my symptoms sound EXACTLY like a TFI[/b] module problem.

After anywhere between 10-30 minutes of driving my voltmeter on the dash will start "bouncing" back and forth slightly and I can see that there is voltage irregularities by looking at a voltmeter that is mounted in my trunk.

After awhile of this erratic behavior the car will just die. Like it loses power completely. Normally it doesnt start back up immediately but requires anywhere between 5-10 minutes then it will start up and run find again.

I stumbled across this site (www DOT coolcats DOT net/tech/troubleshooting/tfi[/b].html) and it shows only the following years effected by the tfi[/b] recall

1984-89 Mustang/Capri (2.3L)
1984-86 Mustang SVO TC (2.3L)
1984-86 Mustang/Capri (2.3L)
1984-85 Mustang/Capri (3.8L)
1984-94 Mustang/Capri HO (5.0L)

It should be noted that I have checked the alternator and battery and both are delivering the correct voltage.-

Can anyone offer any insight? I would GREATLY appreciate it as I just started a new job and getting to work reliably and on time is important to me right now.
