Thanks guys, you are too kind

I figured instead of getting new sensors that are at least $70 a piece and will fail the same exact way, just rebuild my original ones. The insulation I used is silicon coated fiberglass rated up to 200C so should be plenty. It seems it doesn't actually take long for the original BOSCH insulation to fail. I replaced my intake camshaft position sensor a year ago and now noticed that the cable became very stiff already...
