Subject: 99 Turbo update - vroom vroom

Well, the beastie runs & drives. After building one good engine out of two bad ones and more than a little creative merging of newer parts in an older car, the '78 99 Turbo I've been working on is driveable. So, the inevitable questions. Where is the overboost sensor on this thing? It seems to be cutting out the ignition just as I get into the "red" on the turbo gauge, rather than up a ways as I would expect. Where is that beastie, and/or might it be something else like a stuck turbo bypass valve? I still don't have a working alternator for it; can I use one from, say, a 96 or Sonett? Those, I have. Otherwise, can I use a later Saab 900 alternator, and which should I choose? Thanks, Dave Hinz
