Thats right, I do know the anwser to everything. I forgot. Silly me. :)

Well now, this new info does bring some light to your problem. orange
spark, eh? Well, as we all know, orange is bad, N-kaaay. Sounds like it
definately could be your coil which when hot, is not putting out enough
to keep the car running. Since you have a new cap & Rotor, this could
definately be the remaining problem child, excluding the wires. How did
you test the wires out of plain curiosity?

Thats WhaddaIthink.
