Is it the stock fuel injection and ignition, or something aftermarket? At the five minute mark you are losing either fuel or spark, and you have to determine which one is failing.

I would suspect an intermittent fuel pump problem, either due to heat or flow restrictions. The pump has to flow a lot more when driving than it does at idle. Is the tank properly vented? It could also be an ignition module going bad, but I don't know much about what is used in a 90 Mustang.
