svho 6500 rpm
As the title says my new fx svho is only getting 6500 rpm's with 36 hours on the clock. Yesterday it was 7000. I've checked the clutch and it's still spinning one way. Any idea's wat it could be?

Long shot...check the reverse limiter switch

Thats too high rpm for reverse limit.
sounds like clutch or broken shaft.

nope you have a hose lose or off check the hose going to intercooler from throttle body
I have seen them lose form factory

Good call. I forgot about the loose clamps. I found several on ours loose.

Also some have found the clutch to only spin one way and still be bad

Yeah, loose clamps first (I had that) and partial clutch failure as second possibility...
Also, take off the hose 'tween supercharger and intercooler and use a torch (flashlight to you guys) to check the intercooler divider is still in place. It's black rubber and will be visible as you look straight in, if it's come loose it will either obstruct or allow air to bypass the intercooler heat exchanger.
And of course, replace the hose securely. I check them regularly, and have found the rigid and ribbed j-pipe the SVHO has is less prone to loosening than the more flexible one that was on the SHO.

I would like the solve the problem myself because the dealer here at the canary islands isn't capable to fix it. He would probably make it worse.
