Getting the right CPS.... Maybe not the International one??

You Guys might want to verify this, but a Ford Engineer told me by Email, that the International CPS was not the right one to get. It is a BLUE model CPS, and it evidently has a different Timing to it than the BLACK one... My CPS for $98 came from the powerstrokeshop.com people.

They also answered me the same question as I asked "is this the blue one or the black one". That the black one was original equipment, and the blue one was a different timing and would only work for the more extreme hot rodders...

Now I freely admit, I do not know for sure. But Fyreman, you mentioned in your Post "Got bit by my CPS" that you stopped by "International" and picked one up???? If it is the Blue one, it might pay to do a little research and find out if this information is true or not. It might not hurt any thing, then again it might longterm, or it might hurt fuel economy or something...

Da Ranger sez: do da research... You guys and gals can do it a lot easier over there, just relating a concern I was told to watch out for.

In all fairness it might not be an issue, but I think I would find out..

Regards, Ranger in Oz....

I think if I remember right, and from what I have seen on here, the black on is OEM and the one that you want. The blue one retards your timing just a bit. But I think the black one is the one you are looking for. Run that by Marc first before you take it to the bank.

Yea, what he said....


"Retards the timing" is what I remembered as well, but I searched my Email and must have deleted the response, so I did not say it... But that is what I remembered as well. That would hurt fuel economy a tad.. Me thinks...

Maybe Guru Marc will set us straight. Compared to his knowledge on the Powerstroke electronics I am just a dancing chicken... Ha!


I am just an old school diesel nut...

Mind you, I wish I could buy a brand new Ford from the 80's or 90's .... I might just build one... Ranger in Oz...

You could be right Super Stroke, but in all fairness, if all it affected was a little worse fuel economy they might not even know? They could just be dumping a little fuel efficiency with retarded timing...

In the old days a slight advance of timing on gassers made for better fuel burn and power efficiency, but slight retarding of the timing shot the fuel mileage in keeester...

I heard the bad news from two pretty reliable sources by private email. I could be wrong, but trying to help out a little.. My CPS is the black one due to the private email sent to me re.....

All Marc, he is usually there to lend a hand or can do the Ford Techie research... He probably knows...

But I would bet a beer on my two sources.... They seemed very credible and there IS a difference according to them.. It might explain some worse fuel economy reported?????? Dunno.
