Where could I buy a new one and what do you think the cost would be?

Besides the dealer where can I buy a new one?
no other place will have it new only used from another vehicle sorry.
you can try online there are some companies that will reconstruct the same wiring for you but is verry expensive.
Do you think that will solve the cutting off and rpm surges etc.?
yes the cam sensor controls injection and the cranck sensor controls spark they need to sinchronize together if they dont then you wwill experiance surging,missfires,stalls hesitation and no power at times.
