It doesn't sound like a TFI to me. When mine was going bad it ran
poorly even at cruise, and sometimes even got better when I changed
throttle position often. Following a similar thread on Fordnatics
has led me to suspect the plug wires in cases like yours (and mine
at the track when I turned the boost way up). They're all
recommending the Motorcraft (as opposed to Motorsport) wires.
