So as of 5-6 months back I picked up a 1984 20th anniversary Mustang GT350 with the 2.3 turbo. Well the original motor had been removed but I just so happened to have a motor from an XR4TI with only 50K miles, as I was looking to buy mounts for the car I was noticing that none looked like they would be the correct mount for my car, however motor mounts from an 86-88 Thunderbird Turbo Coupe w/ 2.3T, 1986 Cougar XR-7 w/ 2.3T, and 1987-93 Mustang 2.3 N/A looked as they would be the correct application. I do not want to buy motor mounts just to find out they will not work and deal with sending them back and waiting for a refund. Pics below are of the motor, sub frame mount, motor mounts claimed to fit and motor mounts which to me look to be right. Please help.
Also, original motor mount from xr4ti still in place on passenger side, just dismiss it being there.

Ok, I am sorry for not seeing the obvious right away but after seeing all the pictures in a row and next to each other I was able to see that the ones called for are the correct ones. It just didn't look right at first for some reason.

I would get the top set, the plate you have still bolted to the cross member are removable. And the black set will drop right in. The other set will probably work too, but the black ones I can pretty much guarantee will fit.

That being said, could you kindly tell me where you found both sets?? Mine are shot, and I haven't been able to find a good set..


Correction, after looking again, the bottom set are not factory location. They appear to set the engine back 2" or so.. So unless you modify the trans cross member, and maybe driveshaft, they might not work. Those I assume are meant for a racing application. Also, could have used a set of those when I was racing dirt track.
