  • Can you clarify which client you're using? Geth? Parity? A different one? – Richard Horrocks Jun 19 at 7:07

Yes, if you have forked then you are free to change the consensus code.

The consensus part is mostly in the consensus/ directory of the https://github.com/ethereum/go-ethereum repository.

I don't know of any guide to make modifications to geth source. Since the code is always changing it is likely that such guide will be obsolete almost immediately.
