I havent read this all yet, but I've sub'ed, and just want to say, as a modular/triton motor fan, this is AWESOME! I'm amazed it actually fit! those things are HUGE! If I ever do a V8 swap in a 240, I'm doing this. I've seen it, I believe it, I'll make it happen. Feel bad I helped shoot that guy down sometime back who posted about doing this in his 240 purely off of size, I guess I'll deal with the taste of my foot for now .

I love this build, because it's different.

That being said, and after owning/building a dozen + Foxbodies (pushrod 302's), I hate mod motors.

Copy/paste from ModularFords forum

It´s been a awhile since last update! The old Volvo has been in the garage and gone through some changes and upgrades over the last 5 years; 9" rear installed, 02 Mustang GT brakes installed all around, Engine has been rebuild, and built for boost with MMR 4.75 Crank, MMR Rods and pistons. 9.2:1 Compression. Vortech V2 Intercooled, McLeod twin disk clutch, Holley HP EFI, Fifteen52 17x8" front/17x9"back wheels, and more and more and more...











hope you like it!

*sorry for the huge photos!
