"Modular" V-10 & V-8 bellhousing bolt pattern same?

Howdy all,

Can anyone tell me if the E4OD that came from a V-10 will bolt to a smaller V-8 or is it the same as a 460?



Thanks,


Rick

All modulars use the same bellhousing pattern. 4.6L,5.4L,and 6.8L.

And there never was an E4OD that bolted to a modular bolt pattern. It's a 4R100. And the 6.0L and 6.4L diesels also use this bolt pattern.

Taking this knowledge, the obvious thing to do is bolt a V10 in a Mustang with a 5-speed behind it. That would be fun!

I'd think you'd need a tranny designed for an engine like the Dodge Viper V10, then it would hold up to the power.

Yeah,a Viper-spec T56 would work,but I dunno how much of a Frankenstein that would be,and I'm sure shifter and/or shifter linkage would be a custom job.

Hmm... I'd think a TKO would handle the power just fine, and be a bolt-in replacement.

I've seen TKO's and other transmissions like that ripped apart with alot less torque than a stock V10 would make....it would have alot to do with the driver,and how hard they beat on it.

Already been done... http://www.mustang50magazine.com/featuredvehicles/138_0402_boss_351_v10_mustang/index.html

Note though, it's not exactly the same as what's in our trucks... but cool nonetheless!

A search on Yahoo displays lots more info from other sites...

Yeah,that car was a one-off done in secret by the guys at Ford's Advanced Engine Development facility...their bosses would have had a cow had they known about it before it was done. Afterward of course,they didn't have any problems with the good press it made. The guy driving the car in the pic of it smoking the tires is a friend of mine from Michigan-he's actually the same person that did the cylinder head work for my Tbird. That car went through multiple clutches in the course of the magazine photoshoots.

Yeah, I'd imagine. It's just nice to see that somebody actually tried it. How can you not experiment a little with competition the way it is in the auto industry these days?
