from what i can see it will fit in with the rrs notching kit and as for trans the t56 will do the job . The sump will have to be cut and shaped to fit as well. i,ve dropped the xf shell and gone with an v8 xd shell for strength ( advised by engineer ).

Both bellhousing and engine mount pattern are different to smallblock ford.
All modular engines(4.6,5.4,6.8) share the same patterns.


Not trying to undermine you Pete, but some "very" early 4.6L modular V8's had small block bolt pattern, but I would have no idea about engine mounts, never looked into this (I was after a tranny, not the engine :P ).

If I were to get serious about using a modular I would base it off a late Cobra 4.6L DOHC or if dollars are no option 5.0L Cammer crate engine, it would be cool to have a sweet sounding V8 that can also scream like a Banshee!

Anyone got a link to those all alloy aftermarket (5.4 like) 6L block?

Today @ Warwick Farm AFD there was an XE wagon (well it had an XE front, never checked compliance plate) fitted with a 260 modular V8, it definitely did not have RudeRideSuspension front end.

I wouldnt want to change plugs but it cleared, I was very surpised how well it fitted.

it was an XE i had a look at its plate to make sure. nice job with the BA dash and console in it, and it looked a treat with the Bonnet bulge, and ba repeaters on the guards.

That was the most impresive one off custom car there

I will say, and I hadnt noticed the car, it was just FM members told me to have a look.

The most impressive thing for me was the fact it didn't go backwards by fitting RRS, I know front X series suspension isn't that good but you could do a whole lot more than fit a McPherson strut setup, just look what Pete is fitting to his Cougar.
