So my gray CPs is giving me some problems and was wondering if the International one is a different one than the Ford one. The International one is still supposed to be all black and not gray. I have been doing some research on it and from what I've read it is supposed to be different, just was wondering if anyone here has had any experience with it. Also Napa carries the part as well, anyone know if that is a ford or international one? Thanks:thumb:

Damn, that sucks. I'm glad I never took mine into the dealer.

They wanted to keep it overnight for 24 hours....I told them it takes 10 minutes to swap out the part and asked if they would give me a loaner. They wouldn't, so I wouldn't let them touch my truck.

yea, pretty much sucks. Anyone know if the new batch of gray ones are any good? I just paid 30 bucks for the one from NAPA and I can get a Ford one for 15.

Im not sure. ive read on one occasion its ads and on another it retards?? I have no idea. I have read that the black international one is the best one to run though. I called an international dealer up here and he said they only have the gray ones in now.

I have the "new and improved" gray one, and it has not given me any problems:dunno: Truck runs fine.

Maybe you did just get one from a bad batch or something:dunno::dunno:

actually the NAPA ones are made in the US, or so it says on the box. And I call your bluff on the 600+ HP, you def need to fill out your signature as was mentioned above. I'll be sticking with the old black cps's for now until Ford pulls their head out of their a$$

no, I dont think your slow with no go, or not that we dont belive ya. Its just 600hp is ALOT of power to get out of a 7.3 on #2 only and everyone wants to see how you did it, probably gonna have to post dyno sheets or track times before anyone truly believes ya

from cps to hp

well if you do the math 1cc add 2hp what do you come out with?our truck club in hawaii,we will have a dyno day.but one run is $150 and so I,m trying to find one thats cheaper?and so then I,ll post dyno run.so for now I can dream that I have that 12incher cant I ?but I,m sure,its not to far off?Right now we are doing some testing on tips sizes and the Hpop I have.we got the flow to run them ,but can we run them out?I,m sure we will find that sweet spot.I,m working with some good guys that know there sh..!!!and are there and way over 600hp on 2 diesel .But its fun learning more each day and sh.. made alot of good frends and alot of thinking out of the box.but for now i.ll keep kranking on it and run my shop in hawaii.but i,m going to tell you 1000hp powerstroke will be more and more.we are at that cutting edge.and if a man say he has a 12incher beleave him cause he might prove it.and that would hurt.ooch!
