I believe you can buy a generic crank sensor and splice it to the Saab OE wiring. I've never done this so I can't say for sure. The thing I don't like about doing so is that the splice adds another potential failure point.
I've converted two NA cars (one 2.0, one 2.1) to use a dizzy. I had the good fortune to have a local indy who let me into his yard of retired Saabs for the necessary wiring. You will need the distributor and the wiring that goes to it. The actual conversion is pretty easy. Someone here on SaabNet sent me their instructions.
You need a distributor without mechanical advance.
I'm happy with the conversions I've done. I would say the cars "might" run a little better with the crank sensor ignition but the ability to do away with the crank sensor makes it worth it. If I remember correctly, I had replaced the crank sensor once on both of the cars I converted. When they failed the second time (years later) the OEM part was getting hard to find so I said enough is enough and converted to a distributor.
