Why exactly do they call it a Modular motor? How is it different from other engines?

Where does the modular come from?

The 4.6L was lower, shorter and lighter than the 302, but the base engine made more power than the 302, got better fuel economy and passed all the emission tests without a thermactor pump. Ford called it its "modular" engine because it was part of a whole new family of engines that were intended to have a common architecture "so they could share similar production tooling and have many interchangeable parts."

I guess FrankenCougie is a good example of the meaning of modular...
