Modular motors are nothing new diesel have been using them for years and if there is a problem with one of the pieces I can replace that piece with having to replace the whole block as a whole it's a stronger design sorry boys

Ok, I'll admit to not knowing a lot about the Ford mod motors, but you just totally lost me here.

So, what on earth are you talking about?
As far as I know you cannot "replace just a piece" of a Ford modular engine block.

The idea behind the mod motor is it's many pieces sandwich together now unless ford did something different thats the basic xoncept

I know of the concept, but you cannot just unbolt and replace part of a modular engine block after it has been cast.

The way I understand it the "modular" part of the design allows the factory to add or remove cylinders easily when casting blocks.

The Ford Modular engine is Ford Motor Company's overhead camshaft (OHC) V8 and V10 engine family, which has been produced in 4.6L, 5.0L (Cammer, Coyote), 5.4L, and 6.8L variations. Contrary to popular belief, the Modular engine did not get its name from its design or sharing of certain parts among the engine family. Instead, the name was derived from a manufacturing plant protocol, "Modular", where the plant and its tooling could be changed out in a matter of hours to manufacture different versions of the engine family.[1] The Modular engines are used in various Ford, Lincoln, and Mercury vehicles. Modular engines used in Ford trucks have been marketed under the Triton name since 1997 while the InTech name was used for a time at Lincoln for vehicles equipped with DOHC versions of the engines.

A diesel modular is completely different than a 4.6 or 5.4 mod motor. Not even the same concept. The block is cast as one piece, not with individual cylinders like the diesels you are talking about.

Well then it's not a true modular motor a modular motor is put together like building blocks and diesels and gas motors are different but very similar and please don't start telling me the differences I know all of them . U know that h or x pipe ur running where do you think the idea of letting the other cylinders help pull the used exhaust out . But either way I'd rather have a dohc 427 yes the first true hemi
