I have replaced the DI Cassette, Plugs and the Crankshaft sensor.  I am still getting a CEL when RPM is above 2400.  Any suggestions?

What code or codes are you getting, or are you just guessing and replacing parts at this point? Reply with the codes and we can pinpoint the issue.

don't remember the "code numbers" but they were: random misfire and cam shaft sensor fail. There is no cam shaft sensor of if there is it is built into the DIC.

I looked in the parts catalog and for the 9-5 both the 2.3L and 3.0L engine there is a camshaft position sensor.

Tom, did you locate the "cam sensor" on the 2.3t engine? I cannot find it anywhere.
