Angry For those running the "new" IH CPS (1885812C91)

I picked one up today from the local IH dealer and installed it. It was a HUGE PIA! The old one came out fine but the new one kick my *** going back. If you try to bolt it up then hook up the weather pack connector, it's impossible due to the location of the crank pulley. Long story short, I hooked up the sensor, then bolted it up. This caused the bolt to go in crooked and now it's cross threaded! I spaced the bolt out with washers and it appears to have "bit" but it's not right. Also, I used the shims that came with the CPS and installed them as per IH instructions. Did you all use the shims? A few sites I went to say not to use shims!? What a friggin day! I never thought changing a stinking CPS sensor would be so tough. The plus side is it 100% fixed my surging idle problem. I don't notice any discernable difference in performance.

Actually the "blue" CPS has been superseded by this one. The new, "new" CPS is half gray and half black and yes it's for the DT466.

Yeah, I guess I'm not the only one dumb enough to spend $120 on a "snake oil" CPS. Honestly I figured the diesel performance sites were just marking them insanely up. I went to the IH dealer expecting to pay a fraction of their prices, unfortunately it was still $118.00. I got it anyway because it has been hailed as the "end all, be all" CPS and I shouldn't have to mess with it ever again. Time will tell.

I ran the blue. It acted like the timing changed. I would *NOT* recommend the dt466 cps for *ANY* modded truck.

Modded truck = well beyond your average "I got a chip and intake" truck.

Agreed, until my rig doesn't have to get me back and forth to work every day...I'm staying with the "chip and intake" crowd.
