If it was MY car and they told me that, I'd start by talking to an experienced Viper service tech at a CDJ dealer. They've seen everything in the lineup and could probably recommend a few that are reasonably similar.

You have to make some kind of adapter, but at least you'd have some hope starting with the right 0-5V harness plug and material of construction. A Dremel grinder, a couple of tubes of JB Weld, a bar of 3003 aluminum, a lathe and some o-rings ought to be enough to get you back in business in a couple of days.

Yes, its possible. Easier said then done, but possible. It is technically just a Hall Effect sensor. We make "oddball sensors" work all the time in conversion packages. I wouldn't however go so far as to say that another Mopar sensor could be adapted... I cant think of one that is even remotely similar.

The question is volume, and sensor cost. Good hall effect sensors can easily reach into the $100-200 range, plus the "adapter" costs. For me to make a 1-off with a high-quality sensor, it would be in the 300-500$ range. At higher volumes, I could probably get it into the $200 ballpark. That said, I haven't put a lot of time into finding a compatible sensor at a reasonable cost, that's just one of the high-speed sensors we use all the time. It might come out cheaper in the end.

OP. The question is, if you don't have a working camshaft position sensor; how, much is it worth to you to buy a custom one?

To my surprise, it really didn't make any big noise. I all happened so fast, 1 second we're doing a pull, next second we saw smoke and immediately killed the car. Doesn't seem like any shards got through the pickup filter so I think I got very lucky. Lesson learned lol


Update - Might have gotten lucky here! A friend from Canada actually had a spare so he's shipping that to me Might take a couple weeks but hey, at least I'll have a running Viper!

Rock Auto lists available cam position sensor for Gen 2 Vipers.

Worth checking, but I have a feeling that it isn't the right part
