open your searches. brp hotrods makes drop in motor mounts. but they're expensive. or search "mustang mounts" and you see plenty of easy examples of how to make your own. some 1/4in flat steel, and some 1 1/2in square or round stock. very simple. get the motor back and low as possible and keep it level

I went with Brp because of header options. Where else can you get race headers 1 7/8 to 2 inch coated step header fot 800.00

I built my own. Not as nice as brps but I went through every step I could think of to make sure that the engine was centered and checked engine angle for every little thing. It took me a while but it turned out good. I fabricated them for use with the upr 50 k member.
