PT Performance/ Sure Motorsports trans mounts

Pulling a bolt in two is never as easy as breaking it in two.
I was looking for a mount that gets rid of the verticle bolt design on the trans side. Seems like the verticle design works w/ the stock style rubber mounts= The motor moves around or pivots. Then you add a poly bushing & the alloy tower on the trans breaks or cracks. Seems like PT performance is another horizon bolt design, like Sure motorsports. Now which on?
