TFI stands for Thick Film Ignition. (Refer to this for an image of how it sort of looks like)

The TFI module is grey in colour and is attached to the distributor. They are prone to fail and do not like moisture very much.

I would personally check the coil out first and then the distributor cap and then TFI.
