Duraspark Problems

Any of you guys had any problems with the Duraspark magnetic pickup? Here's what I got:
392 Stroker/Holley with spacer/ Duraspark/MSD 6AL ing. Latey when driving, it will just cut out. After I let it sit for 5/10 minutes, starts up and then will do it a couple of miles later. The engine does it no matter what the temp is. I have a MSD blaster 3 coil that I replaced a year ago. The wireing is fine in the car. Superformance Cobra factory built.
Any help?

Thanks

Had an 83 F150 that did the same thing. Replaced the duraspark box, coil - nothing. Drive for 10-15 minutes and it'd shut down. After I replaced the pickup I had no problems.
