alfa romeo 147 not giving maximum speed

my alfa romeo 147 of 2003 had a gasket problem and when it was changed it blew up the ignition sensor on the front and after replacement, the car refuses to go over 100km/hr speed. i did a computer diagnosis and it says camshaft sensor is disabled either because wires may have broken or its camshaft timing since the camshaft has no markings on it. what can i do? there are no alfa romeo specialist here in botswana?

2 choices

1, order a new cam sensor and possibly a cambelt kit (if this hasn't been replaced or due for a change) together with camlocks and tdc guage. Give it a ago changing the sensor yourself and use the cambelt change guide on alfaworkshop website. you will need to unbolt the exhaust cam pulley to get to the sensor. i cut the cable halfway and wired the existing connector plug on. as the cable for the sensor goes behind the inlet cam pulley and other items. so i found it easier to do the above.

2. still order the parts and get a local garage to replace it for you.
