  The Ultimate Ford Modular engine - American History Information Guide and Reference
The engine is modular in that it can be adapted to V8 or V10 with a variety of 2-valve and multivalve heads.
It came from the factory with an intercooled supercharger and is an aluminum DOHC 4-valve engine.
The Ford V10 was used in 1997-2002 Ford Trucks as the Triton V10.

The "Modular" name has little to do with the motor, but on the manufacturing methodology; the plants can be retooled to put out different versions of the Modular powerplant in a matter of hours.
The most significant characteristic of the Mod V8 as opposed to the 302, or for that matter the other popular Ford engines, the 351 Windsor and 351 Cleveland, is that it is an overhead cam (OHC) design, coming both in single-cam (SOHC) and dual-cam (DOHC) designs rather than being a pushrod/overhead valve (OHV) design.
The 2003 Ford 427 Concept is a four-door sedan much like a late-model (2000s) Chrysler 300M with a 427 cubic inch Modular V10 with 590 horsepower and 590 ft-lb of torque.

An engine is the heart of any muscle car, and with the new 2005 Mustang, the beat goes on stronger than ever.
Ford’s modular engine architecture lets Mustang share its aluminum heads with the new, 5.4-liter, three-valve Triton V-8 of the F-150, benefiting manufacturing efficiency.
At low engine speeds and light loads, these specially shaped CMCV flaps are closed to speed up the intake charge and induce a tumble effect in the combustion chamber.

Both engines are members of Ford's "Modular Engine Family", meaning that basic design specifications and dimensions are shared across all members of the family.
A DOHC 4.6 V-8, the basis for the Cobra engine, is the standard engine in the Mark-VIII (with either single or dual exhaust providing 280 and 290 horsepower respectively), and yet another variation of this engine is standard in the '95 front wheel drive Continental.
Accessories on both engines consist of an alternator mounted in the V area, an air conditioner compressor mounted on the lower passenger side, and a power steering pump mounted on the lower driver side.

Ford vehicles use more PM components because the No. 2 automaker has been the most active in developing applications for the exotic technology.
Because the connecting rods are so close to perfect, Ford has been able to implement a new cracking process to separate the PM rods from their caps.
Normally the caps are removed by production sawing, but the modular engine line was designed to precisely crack the rods along a scored line, which is said to be faster, more precise and easier on tools than sawing.
