Camshaft position sensor?

I put a mml on and had hit the camshaft position sensor in the process. After I got everything back together I had a SEL come and the code was P0016 which is a CPS. I bought a new one and installed it. I cleared the code and went for a drive but not even 2 miles down the road and the code was back. The jeep seems to drive fine with the code the only differences I noticed is I can't go over 3K rpm because the engine acts like I hit the rev limiter and the cruise is disabled. So now I'm not sure what to do. Any help would be much appreciated.

Are you sure you need a Cam position sensor? Maybe you need a Crankshaft position sensor.
