Ford actually had a recall on the CPS. I don't remember which years, but, I had just changed mine about a month before.

Ford has a Re-call on Cam Position Sensors from 94-2003 7.3 DI engines, I've had 2-3 in the shop for them in the last few months. Mine has yet to fail but I really should get it done.
