    Year changes on the FX SVHO

    Anyone have a link - going to be buying one - trying to decide new vs used vs upgrades

    Thinking 2014 and newer - Fort Myers area

    I'm keeping my VXR - need a second ski.

    Thanks

    Significant changes and upgrades at 2019. I have one on the way. If you are looking for an SVHO Model I think you want a 2017+ model due to clutch upgrades.

    others here know more than me.

    15's had Nano 2 and RIDE. 16'S the newer buffer chain, 17's upgraded oil cooler. 18's plastic manifold and apparently better charger internals, pinned housing, 19's whole new ski

    Please read the 2019 sticky notes

    17 is the pick of the bunch and then just pin the charger volute. 17 has the upgraded oil cooler but not the plastic intake manifold.

    So, have you noticed that much difference in the hull handling? Had you ridden the FX svho before you bought yours?
