just out of curiosity why do you want an outdated cam sensor? the new ones are gray and much cheaper. I pull out the black ones and throw them away usually about 1 or 2 a month.

There are differences because they are for different motors and will do different things. e.g., the blue one retards the timing, etc..

There is no shortage of info out there on the issues caused by the gray CPS...
sevenmalards, I have 2 used black CPS's that I carry as back-ups. If you need one give me a shout.

Are all the CPS's the same. i bought a black one from my local pepboys for 32 bucks but it was made for a 97+. My new gray one is givin me trouble. They didnt have the 94-96 in stock and plus their pricing was messed up. the computer said retail: $46.00 and sale $162.00. the guy goes i can have it here by tomorrow, i was like ummm no thats one heck ofa markup and I thought all the cps's regaurdless of years are the same.

Mines blue...just to throw that out there. I have a grey one for back up...id love to have a black one but no one has them anymore. The color does matter its for all different things. I think there is a red one too. Im not even sure what the different things are i just know there is different ones...

I just bought the blue CPS, International part # 1807339c92 off ebay for $59.00 plus $7.00 shipping.
I'll see how the truck reacts to it and I'll post up what I find out. I've heard the blue one retards the timing a bit but give good mileage.

the GRAY CPS is a total pile of dog sh!t.... its only good for a spare to get you off the side of the road....

i need one bad... might have to buy the blue one if i cant find another black one...

There are black ones for sale on ebay...type in Ford CPS and look through them...there are blues blacks and greys. But yes...the grey sucks...its terrible...it can turn a nice 7.3l into a peice of poop....so spend the money...get a blue or black...its a huge difference.
