It's been 1 1/2 yrs. since my original post and my Dk Blue CPS is working great.

This thread help me out then so good to see it's still active.

My truck still gets 17-19mpg I added 4" exhaust and cold air intake which added a couple mpg from my original 17mpg. I do need to get a backup CPS, just checked the Motorcraft Dk Blue is about $24-$30 shipped on EBay.F4TZ12K073-C

good luck to all,
Mike

What did you do with the old Black one?

The one you just installed sounds like the Dark Blue made for 1997 & earlier but which work well in all the 7.3's:

My 2000 7.3L SD has been stumbling the last few days. What has been on the truck since 2004 is a grey (F7TZ-12K073-B). A dealership put that on after whatever was on it (probably a black) failed.

I have a black (F7TZ-12K073-A) that has been in my glove box since 2004 (after the above mentioned failure) and I have a dark blue (F4TZ-12K073-C) that the "Amazon Fairy" brought me today.

Which of the two spares should I use, black or, dark blue?

I still run the black CPS in mine. Having spares keeps my CPS error free.

The concern with leaving the black as a spare is that it bounces around in the glove box and goes thru hot/cold cycles where it degrades.

Why not install the black and get the benefits from it?

It may last as long as your truck.

I've got a Black one for somebody if they need it
Boy that is a great offer for someone.

They bring about $80-$90 on Ebay when you can find them and they are getti g harder to find.
