    Now you see why throwing parts at it, didn't help. You need to know the vehicles systems and how to diagnose

You need to test the catalytic converter, these were a common problem. You can do this by removing the oxygen sensor in front of the cat and driving it. It will be noisy, but the open hole will allow excessive back pressure to escape and it will drive better if the exhaust is restricted.

    I wouldn't feel too bad about replacing all the ignition components, that was really just a thorough tune up, As far as knowing the vehicles system and how to diagnose it, I've been doing this for 30 years with all the best equipment and I still get stumped, as do other technicians. Getting back to your problem, I know these vehicles had problems with the distributor assembly itself. I'm not saying that's what it is, but if you can somehow get another one to try, it may be the cause. I had one of these with the same problem and replaced the MAF sensor, honestly it was a guess, and it did not help at all, but if yours is like the one I had, the problem happens the instant the engine gets warm enough to enter closed loop. With mine, the distributor fixed it.

How about the pick up coil in the distributor? A trick we used to use back in the day was to tap the distributor housing with a hammer, key word tap. If the engine missed or stalled than the pick-up coil was replaced.

The car is running poorly and missing when hitting the gas pedal

Give it a good tune up. Change the cap and rotor, plugs. Make sure that the plug wires are in good shape and not broken from heat.
