7.3 cps

So seems like its finely time to do my cps. Its been idiling a little weird lately and last night I tried to start her. She started up rough then idiled for a minute, I shut it off and now she will only crank. Amy of you heard in using the international pre99 cps instead of the ford one. Old buddy of mine said to put that in instead and it will run better and have a smoother idil. Hes been into 7.3s a long time but ive never heard of using the international one.

I can't speak for the SuperDutys but lots of OBS guys are using the IH CPS instead of the Ford one. Kind of an ongoing argument about which is better though.

I was actually thinking of picking both the ford and ih one because its always nice to have a spare. This way of the ih doesnt work out I can throw the ford one. Ive always just put the ford one in on all the trucks ive ever done but if the ih one seems to be better id like to try it on mine before a customers or anyone elses. I was just trying to see what you alls opinions were on the ih one. With my pric I'm ng I can pick them both up for what the ih one retails for.

Yeah get them both and experiment. See which one you like better. I think Tom (chvyrkr) actually explained the technical data one time that supported which one was better but there was some disagreement about personal experiences.

This is what I have tested on my 2001 F350 4X4 Crew Cab DRW. The Ford one was the only one that worked. Now after I said that the connector will cause problems that look like a bad CPS.
