Default What would "Intermittent PI" mean in reference to a throttle body??

I know this is an abstract question but I had to put a new throttle body on my wife's 2008 Taurus a few months back. I was kinda surprised to find that the local Ford dealer had one on the shelf. Since about that time it has had a slight surging problem under throttle. I have been meaning to go back and check my work and make sure all connections and sensors are secure but haven't found the time yet. Anyway, was cleaning out my building this weekend and found the box that the new TB came in. It's obviously an OEM box but I noticed that on one side it has what appears to be "Intermittent PI" written in sharpie. Now I'm thinking the problem with my wife's car is likely the TB and quite possibly one that was known to already exist with this particular part.

We also have a 2009 Edge with the same 3.5L V6. I am going to cross-reference the TB part numbers and hopefully I can swap the two TB's to pinpoint whether it is the TB or not. It's been a few months so I realize that the chances of them helping me even if I can prove it's the TB are slim to none but I'm curious. So my main question is what would "Intermittent PI" mean in this context? The handwriting is crappy so it could be something else but I'm pretty certain it's "Intermittent P-something", lol. Thanks!
