    You have replaced the usual most likely suspects and stops in middle of road when engine reaches operating temp isn't nearly enough description to provide any useful suggestions.
    Time to plug in a scan tool that can check sensor readings and engine codes.

    Agree with Digger. Scan it. Hope you replaced DIC with an OEM. A component is getting heat soaked, and partially failing. Double check your ignition parts.
