Double check your distributor cap and rotor - look for any carbon trails or slight cracks inside the cap . Even though they are new - double check them. This year I have had several new parts that were defective on diferent cars - the latest was a new front wheel bearing on a Jetta - when installed it worked for 2 days then the bearing had play - replaced it again and the other new one is working fine after 5 months. Just a thought - under load your ignition system is working the hardest. Another possibility could be your coil. Just out of curiosity - has it been rainy and damp where you are when this occurs? If so - definately check cap, rotor and coil. One other thing to check is to idle the car in a dark garage or outside at night and lift the hood and look for sparks along ignition wires etc.
