EXAMPLE

1367 is the 4th term in the sequence because it is followed by primes 1997, 2417, 3137, 3257, ... with the property 1367-2 = 3*5*7*13, 1997-2 = 3*5*7*19, 2417-2 = 3*5*7*23, 3137-2 = 3*5*11*19, 3257-2 = 3*5*7*31, ...

MATHEMATICA

Do[s = 3; While[ ! (Length[FactorInteger[Prime[s] - 2]] == n && Max[Last /@ FactorInteger[Prime[s] - 2]] == 1), s++ ]; Print[Prime[s]], {n, 1, 8}] (* Ryan Propper, Sep 01 2005 *)

With[{pn=PrimeNu[Prime[Range[11*10^6]]-2]}, Prime[#]&/@Flatten[Table[ Position[ pn, n, {1}, 1], {n, 8}]]] (* The program takes some time to generate the first 8 terms of the sequence *) (* Harvey P. Dale, Jan 18 2016 *)
