Improved "blue" CPS for PowerStroke...

I recently installed this item Improved Blue CPS for 7.3L Ford Powerstroke Diesel (bottom of page) after receiving it back in March or April...and I am curious as to what other users think.

This is what I have found so far:
- engine takes about 1/2 second longer to start.
- engine definitely idles smoother.
- engine seems to run quieter.

Haven't done any serious hauling with it yet, so I can't address the claims of increased performance or mileage. So how is it possible that a SENSOR can change the characteristics? Isn't it just telling the computer when the camshaft is in a certain position? How can this information be altered to "improve performance"?

Installation was a piece of cake really...less than 10 minutes, 10mm socket working from below...

I've been using international ones. Their $30 and seem to be great. Now to answer the second question is that it's all timing. Better timing, better performance.
