I guess it depends on what your plans are, racing or just enjoy driving? Either pair is good for racing, but will give a harsh vib. in the wheel, the stock mounts are more than adequate for street driving.

The car will see some smoking tires but mostly just street use and freeway speeds. I just want to make sure that I have mounts that will withstand the test of time having to deal with a 500+torque monster.

Are they for your '68? You want these

http://www.summitracing.com/parts/PTP-6-1904/

The ones from Energy Suspension you listed are for 1984-1995 Mustangs. Anyway, I've got a set of these Prothane mounts. They are great. They transmit vibrations a little more than stock motor mounts, but if you've got a lot of low end torque, you'll rip the stock ones apart. You really don't want the TCP motor mounts on anything driven on the street, especially if you have a cam with a lopey idle. The vibration at stop lights would kill you.

I just received these mounts and didn't even realize that a transmission mount is included! Awesome! Thanks for the recommendation!

They work great...in a box! I am still waiting to get the engine dropped in the hole so I really haven't had an opportunity to test them. Soon though!

I know it's a little late for you.I But for any one else on the fence. I have the TCP motor mounts and they dont vibrate you to death at lights or any other time they are rubber mounted and impossible to break, and fit perfectly. Lumpy torque monster surprisingly smooth and loving it.

What I've had on my racer for 4+ years. No problems, oil and dirt doesn't seem to affect them.

Don't poke murphy with a stick.
Hehe, yeh, let him sleep

If those of you out there aren't satisfied with these two options, here are two more.

Ron Morris Performance - Adjustable and the holes are slotted (like the stock and Prothane mounts) just in case your shock towers aren't exactly where they should be or you have other clearance issues.

They also have a lowered version in case you wanted to try to squeeze a 351W with a Victor Jr. intake manifold under that stock hood. Good Luck!

Lakewood - Looks just like stock, but they have an internal limiting mechanism. They are made of rubber and are the cheapest non-stock option out there.

BTW, where were all these options back in 1998 when I sent my fan through my shroud and into my radiator hose. On top of that my air cleaner wing nut kissed the underside of my hood and left a nice little dent. Yes, a chain was installed immediately after that happened.
