Thumbs down 88 n/a Cam position sensor vs 88 Turbo CPS

Are they the same?
More detail below...

So I want to use an 88 n/a Cam Position Sensor in an 88 Turbo.b. Will this have issues?i Are they the same. All my research points to yes it is fine and they are identical. However,t I am just trying to make sure so I don't have any issues..c Maybe I misunderstood or what...h

HELP..

--Too many drinks tonight--ff wall:
My brain poking at my body right now..

The non turbo 7M-GE has a distributor, the turbo 7M-GTE has a CPS, so I cant see as your findings can say they are the same?

The 7mgte has more than one coil pack on top of the engine that provides spark. The cps allows the right coil pack to fire at the right time. While the 7mge uses a distrubuter and only one coil pack.

You can use the GE's distributor in place of the GTE's CPS in a pinch.... they're both cam position sensors, the GE's just has some extra luggage it carries around.

Oh, I really mean only in a pinch... it doesn't fit well by the PS reservoir or the intake piping.... but it does work.

As far as I know the cover and O-ring are still available from Toyota. Someone makes a polished stainless steel cover too.... but I can't remember who makes them or sells them... might be available through ARZ (the only active vendor here at the moment) or possibly Drift Motion.
