May go this route but what trans? Will my 4r70w work. I think it has the same bolt pattern as the 4.6 and 5.4 mod engine. Is that different then the windsor pattern? I cant seem to find a concrete answer

What I have read, it is the same as the mod motors. So 4R70W (3-bolt starter), 6R80 (V8) for automatics.

Need a late model trans. A 4r is not a late model trans as it has the Windor pattern. You need a 10r140 pattern

You can get a 4R70W with the modular bolt pattern.
The 10R140 is a really big transmission, really big. And still no stand alone controllers for it. I think there is one, but $3500 for it, and it still needs more added. I don't really consider that a viable option.

I’m currently doing a Godzilla swap. I highly recommend a 6R80 or 10R80. I’m using a 6R80 for my swap, which is my preference. I also think it’s a much better transmission than the 4R70W. If you’re installing a Godzilla, why go half-way?

I read the question again this morning. I believe MonsterBilly has a small block 4R70W currently.
No, that is the wrong case for a modular motor. It won't work. The controller should, on a different 4R70W. But you are NOT bolting a Windsor transmission case to a modular block.
