I don't know much at all about the Sensonic itself, but I do know that Nick at Genuine Saab offers a hydraulic clutch conversion kit for NG900s, to remove the cable. If that's not what you're asking for though, then I'm sure someone else will be able to help you.

Conversion is viable but it is involved and the kit is not that cheap.

It is available though link.

I imagine that Sensonic must be a little more involving that the regular cable to hydraulic converison, but having done it on a couple of cars I can say it's not that bad. And the benefits are noticeable. As for the parts, try your local junk yard or car-parts.com. I got all the needed parts from Goldwing for $150 or so.

you can convert to sensonic simply by changing the pedals and installing a pipe to the gearbox plus snipping a few wires. the most involved bit is changing the bulkhead plate as you have to pull half the wiring loom in the car. to do it on the cheap you can use second hand 9-3 bits with the special 900 sensonic clutch delivery pipe.
