The wires to some sensors, and I would think that the crank sensor would be one of them, is shielded from electromagnetic radiation. They either twist the pair of wires together, or cover them with a braid, or foil which is grounded on one end only. I would open the harness at the sensor end and see if the wires are shielded or twisted together and match what the factory did.
Otherwise you could run new wires and introduce wierd voltage traces that the computer will notice and try to interpret causing new driveability problems.
