I assume the late 70's to early 80's Old's 307/350 mounts from full size BOP will not work on Firebird even though they are used on the same Olds small block?
It's a parts store part. $6 brand new for a 403 olds-powered firebird motor mount on rockauto.com

Can't speak to the Buick swap, but the Olds swap is a bolt-in. Use the motor mounts for a 403 Trans Am and any 1964-1990 Olds V8 bolts right in. These mounts are unique in that there is a metal bracket that bolts to the block that attaches to the regular Chevy clamshell mounts on the frame.
