Trans & motor mounts

I'm asking if the Mazda3 & speed3 mounts interchange w/ our Focus 23's. Anyone have an idea? I'm looking at PT Performance & SureMotorsports trans mounts. They take the verticle bolt & put it into a horizonal position. Seems to me the rubber oem stock mount works, until you add a poly bushed mount & then the alloy tower on the trans cracks or breaks, where the rubber bushing one lets the motor/trans pivot & putting the bolt into a horzizontal plane gets rid of the motor/trans from pivoting= to control the wheel hop or axle tramp. Looking at the two 23 motor & trans mounts, looks like it'd work. I put this in here for 23 guys.

Checkout Sure Motorsports. I like how the transmission mount bolt is in a horizon position over the verticle postion.

If you get the trans mount let me know, how it is, huh? It's got to make shifting better.

I already called them last week or so & the guy I talked to says he can't confirm if they fit or not. Street Unit has them too w/ free shipping.
