Buster,the question is how much torque does either apply to the driveline??.I mean I can see suspension mounts adding to the torque applied to the driveline which farther makes solid engine mount and no mid plate worst.

Some of the early Corvette and hi-po mounts had like a interlocking "fork" arrangement that restrained the motor on a hard pull, but still retained the rubber isolation during normal driving.....
Hey Mo.Never got that Camaro hooked up huh.........Just kidding bud.LOL.
