engine power loss/stuttering

Well I am going to pull the ignition switch out and look at it today after work, but I am recently doubtful that that is the problem.

Coming in to work today I dropped the girlfriend off at school first so I had about a 45 minute drive total, and the further along I got the worse the problem got. At the end I was noticing that if I pop the hood and let the engine bay cool off for 5 minutes I could drive for maybe 1-3 minutes, if I let the engine bay cool off for 10 minutes I could drive for 5 minutes, etc...
So it seems like something in the engine bay being too hot is the culprit.

Again, when it dies it just cuts out and the DME relay always clicks once when it goes out and once when it comes back. And sometimes clicks wildly while its out. I still have full electrical power inside.

Could this have somethign do with ignition coil or cap and rotor? overheating? they have all been replaced recently but how would I check them?
