    That was pretty cool! I didnt know about the oiling orifice on the side of the chain tensioner. For some reason I thought the oiled the back of the guide.

    Whats the deal with the big counter/balance shaft up on top of the driver side head?

    Its a counter balance shaft. Just like most 4cylinders. Its there to counter balance any engine shake/vibration

    That's an awesome video, pretty cool to see the modular motor all exposed and rotating. [MENTION=14727]96blak54[/MENTION] you've mastered the 4.6/5.4, when are we going to get to see a v10 swap thread?

    Whenever there is a usable intake manifold that will fit in a mustang, I will be looking into this.

    You know, I had a v10 long block. Stupid me scrapped it off. The block was rusted out and a few rods spun. I thought it was useless. Hard times hit and scrap was at its highest. A v10 long block is heavy.

    In thinking, a few edelbrock intakes hacked up could cover the intake situation. The aluminum quality is very good and welds great. Not sure how to square away the computer side of 10 cylinders though.

    I too bought a V10. The issue with them is that their cranksahfts are so long they start to wabble once you hit solid power. 500-600 max. Whipple made a blower for the 3v, if i remember correctly.

    They're a modular power-plant the swap can be done.
