You may also want to look at your catalytic converter. Same results for a clogged cat. Run fine cold, total power loss when warmed up.

A lot of those (especially the '87 2.9) had problems with the ignition module. That is just the way those act. They're around $ up to $75, depending which one you pick. If you pull the old one it can be checked out before you invest in the replacement.

Hope this helps,
