Default TFI module or Fuel pump?? 95 gt, help!

ok soi live in cali and soon as the 100*+ heat came my 1995 mustang gt started having problems, when i drive it it's fine for about 20-30 mins, once it warms up it goes crazy it misses will turn off randomly ( it usually starts right back up), ive been doing research and it sounds like the TFI module but some would suggest fuel pump, the pump sounds fine i bought a new fuel filter just incase, i really believe it to be the Module but most ppl say its that issue on there foxes , what do yall think???

No, that would be HORRIBLE to put in your car. Go look through the tech articles, and stickies... I have a thread floating around somewhere, in which I show step by step, how to disassemble your stock distributor.

ok before i buy the parts i need to rebuild. i pulled codes, and i got none for distributor or pip sensor i only got, code 181, 189 and 334, and yes i think my egr is really clogged. my carbecomes a huge issue when the weather is hot, after a while of driving the speedometer would jump around like crazy and eventually the car would turn off, it starts right back up but drives like junk, if something were wrong with the pip would it pull codes for it? also ive touched my tfi module after i run it and its scorching, should i just change both?
