I would like to see what a set of triton v10 mounts look like when set side by side with small block mounts. I know it sounds crazy as hell but at some point I would like to put a triton v10 into my 79 ranchero, preferably the 3v variant. Im not after a particular output or track time, I just want the badassery inherent in having a cool old car with a cool new motor and a 79 Ranchero 500 with a triton v10 is just what the Doctor called for!!!

Compared to the Mustang 5.0 mounts, similar but different.

However, remember that the engine is wider than a 460, has a balance shaft, and has no aftermarket intake available. You are better off w/ a 5.4 as you can get Trickflow heads, non-truck intake from the aftermarket, and is also doesn't have a balance shaft. A 6.8 is nothing more than a 5.4 w/ two extra cylinders.
