More AV gossip.

Reliable source told me that Ford were changing to a 4 stud wheel design to cut costs.

Also in addition to engine builders signatures, an embossed picture of the builder will be displayed on the rocker covers.

From what i understand.. us aussies are dismantling the engines, reboring them so they are round, then re-assembling.
Builders pictures will only be on xr's and t's... lower spec ones will get a pic of Mr. Polites.
