ICP Question

My F350 had a check engine light on and had all of the typical signs of a bad CPS. I changed that out and now the truck runs better but still has the check engine light on. Turns out it needs an ICP sensor. Ford dealer wants $200 and I found a Alliant Power online for $178.95 and a Bostech online for $149.95. Any reason not to buy the Bostech?

The one I found on Purediesel is $169.99. If the FORD OEM is that much better/reliable, then it is worth the extra 20 bucks.

What are the common signs of a failing or failed ICP?

Denton, TX

I envy those that know exactly which modification to make and in the most logical of sequences. But not enough to trade for my meanderings and misfires.

Mine would surge, stall, buck, all kinds of weird things. Shifts hard when CE light is on. Mine is a 95 so I can't get it scanned just anywhere, so I initially thought it was CPS. It is inexpensive enough that I changed it out. I think it was bad as well because afterwards the truck ran better, but still had the weird idle surges and would stall sometimes while idling.
