That article was written before Ford used a 4V iron block and a 2V aluminum block. The '03-'04 Cobra received a iron block 4V, the '01-'04 Explorer received a aluminum block 2V, and the 3V Mustang blocks were aluminum as well.
Mod motors are called modular for their manufacturing process. The bore and machining is as streamlined as can be for making 3 different motors off the same design. the triton V10 is simply a 5.4/4.6 (stroke length escapes me ATM) with an extra cylinder to each side. That help?
has nothing to do with the engine.....engines are plain jane legacy motors....modular refers to the tooling used on the assmbely line machines that assemble the engines. the assembly line machines hare quick change "modular" to provide tooling for vaarious engine types.
so the next time you hear "todays modular engines are this and that" , not true, the engines themselves are the same legacy short blocks being produced the last few decades.
