I have just set my motor transmission in my new car. It's an 84 buick regal and i'm using a 350 turbo. my transmission mount and crossmember do not match up. do i need to get a different member? the bolt holes dont match up on the frame and when i get 1 side to match up the other side is too short.do i need to get a member off an older car say late 70's?

Would work too, tho the tubing would be a lot lighter. Pounds=hp.
