if they used the old flywheel bolts, then they need to be replaced. you MUST use NEW flywheel bolts when replacing the flywheel.

How much did you pay for the whole job? Did the shop know the SVT clutch is different from the normal zetec clutch

high potential for one or more bolts to back out and play inside the bellhousing.

and by play I mean shit up.

does "this guy" have a manager you can talk to? tell them you'd like to see the part number for the clutch they used. tell them that ford recommends new flywheel bolts, and you would like new ones installed before they back out and chew up your trans. also, if you asked for a stage 1, you should have been given that clutch. tell them you want it done over, and you aren't paying labor to do this.

I 100% do not agree that the stock Fly Why bolts cannot be reused , I have done it hundreds of times with no issues at all , 300+ HP on a lot of them

I dont know what your issue is but I may be able to help you with checking it , give me a call

To add to this the shop that " sent " the clutch back for a warranty would need a RMA # if you call ededy I am sure they will confirm they need this # for a return , the shop should have that # , they should have a receipt for the shipping etc , call exedy standing in there shop and let the shop and exedy talk about the return and what happen to the old clutch , this shouldnt be hard if in fact thats what happen
