Unless you are running a steel bell housing I would keep the trany mount. We broke several aluminum housings with a gutted lightweight muncie hanging on an aluminum bell housing. We made a small trans mount out of 3/4 and 1/2 inch square tube and didn't loose another one.
As for mounts.. Use a motor plate if possable!

If there is room(no stock firewall)use the mid-plate.Stiffer is always better.Don't forget the extra-long dowels for alignment.
