sputter when its hot out

things i have done to car:

*reman head/1 piston and rod/all new gaskets/head bolts 2,000 miles since
*egr valve and tube
*plugs wires/coil pack
*timing belt and tensionor
*pcv valve

i travel one way to work about 40 miles...on a day its 85 out at about 30 miles car sputters to the point you have to pull over..if you restart car it will go a few more miles before you have to pull over again...i had the same problem with the other head also so when i put on reman head i checked all hose's which appeared to be good! car runs good in the winter...just when it gets warm out i cant figure this out doesnt make no dam since...iam tried of putting money in this dam car i should have just did engine swap instead of reman head any ideas?
