they are worth the money they are design to last longer then the OEM type mounts. I have not use the motor mounts yet but have use the suspension sets and so far the have outlasted the OEM parts by ten years and still going strong

In my opinion; for a street car, "No". They offer the same warranty as the stock replacement but at almost twice the cost. The motormounts would probably be good in a high torque application. The suspension parts would be better for a road race or off the road vehicle.

This will work fine IF you have enough manifold vacuum. Most carbs have a connection at their base for the power brakes.

Sounded to me like a topic from "SLANT SIX", and sorry there I don't know if they're worth the cash.

14" or more at idle in gear should work your stock power brake booster fine.
