Does the new motor lineup share common bore sizes ect.... like the 4.6, 5.4 and the 6.8. ?

This might explain:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ford_Modular_engine

"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"

Thanks..... I had thought it had to do with the common 90.2 mm bore size.
