You need to stop and think twice before using solid motor mounts. Do a search on here for them. There are some great discussions and cautions. They cause a lot of vibration.

When height is a concern, I think most use convertible or the Energy Suspension poly mounts.

How far off are the pipes? I had to do some trimming of my exhaust cutouts. A little shave here and there is normal.

I used Moroso solid mounts ( since'99) Summit part # MOR-62544 at $69. . Don't know what you are looking for in lowering but I'm sure you could fabricate a little more room with a good welder. As shown in the Summit book they are 2.5" high. From the frame mount to the block including the block bracket it measures total 4.5".

I disagree entirely, especially with a stockish 302. They'll be just fine. I DO agree with using a stock rubber or poly trans mount with the solid engine mounts however.

I run solid mounts with a longer arm 408 stroker and it's still relatively smooth.

You can get solid, drop mounts from a company called HPM motorsports. They make them 3/4" lowering and are intended to give you hood clearance when running a 351W in a Mustang.
Part number is HPM-6000-BZ. They'll bolt right up and do the job for you.

I will PM you the link to a site that sells them, rather than violate any forum decorum.
