Cam positon sensor

So thought mine might be going bad so I bought one the delphia one. Put it in started worse but ran okay but mileage went down. A lot of people said the borge warner one was the best so bought it and put it in today. By far the worse kept missing bad at 2000 rpms. So I put the old ford grey one back in and back to running fine. I know people say these affect different how they run but it wouldn't be this bad with any of the ones I bought would it? Anyone no if ford still has the grey ones or do they have another new one out. Im afraid if I don't get another grey one and they go away truck will never run right.

I have thought about it. Just confused me because the borge warner suppose to be like the original black almost and it wouldn't come close to running.

I know many people don't want to hear it, but dfuser.com has a blue IH CPM, but it costs about $134. Your other best bet for e99-'03 7.3s is the black IH CPM. I have all the #'s from any color you need & the #'s you have to stay away from. I only have the p/n's, I don't actually carry CPMs.

Motocraft. Buy it from Ford!
It is not a performance mod, it is an essential to making your truck run, buy it from the people who designed it.

+1 on this. Every CPM I've ever bought came in an IH box.
