that looks like it should work, how about the trans mounts for the t5 mustang trans in the same fairlane?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I cannot seem to find anything on it. I certainly like items that do not require modifying the car like the motor mounts listed.

You need to contact Butch's & tell them what you have planned.....
The Transmission Mount would be likely the same Mount that came in the same year the T5 was, as the Transmission Mount will be a fabricated Metal strip from frame to frame & the actual Rubber Mount will be the T5 Mount

IF you do not trust a "ready made" set up, then many Weld / Metal Fabricating Shops can do this, although a little pricey.....
I have a 1940 Ford Truck that I had a Fabricator make 351C Mounts & C6 Trans Mount..........
