Question speedo queries on xh xr6 ute


I'm just curious if anyone know's why when the speedo cable is disconnected (was recently when i replaced my clutch) that my ute will seem to drive fine up to 3500rpm, but above that rev range it just cuts sick reving up and down of its head!?!?

Does the current running through the speedo wire somehow effect the engine management system or something??

Would it harm the motor if ran like this, or is there a way around it??

I have an XR6 XH, which i think is different to the standard XH??

Hmmm defintaely a strange problem. Does the speedo read accurately, or is it way off? Definately does not sound good.

The XH XR's have a modified cam and head. I'm unsure about the series 1's, but the series 2 have a different intake manifold, computer, airbox...

Welcome to the boards BTW:s5 :s5

Good to see another XH owner, XR owner at that on the boards. Look forward to seeing some pics of yer baby...
