Power-glide Turbo 350 Swap

Hello, I am swapping out a power-glide with a turbo 350 tranny in a 55 BelAir is it recommended that I cut the lower motor mount brackets to allow more wiggle room for the swap? I am also swapping out the 6 cylinder with a small block 350 chevy motor so the lower brackets will not be needed.
