The one beside the timing cover is the same.
Either the front or rear (I think the rear) is different. The difference is in the length. I think the T/E/L ones are shorter. Been a while though. Must be changed or the drivers side mount (by the timing cover) will not fit.

Both the front and rear GVR4 engine mounts are different than the TELs by about 3/4". While you can make the TEL ones fit, it is a PITA as you've found out. Swap in the GVR4 stuff and you'll be fine.

I'm confused. Seems like everyone has a different interpretation of 'front mount'. As long as I've ever known, the front mount is always on the front of the car. The sides are named driver or passenger.

I believe the front and rears are call roll stops.

I just used my old GVR4 motor mounts to install a motor into my 90 Talon project. The mounts were already set up for ProThane mount inserts. Motor dropped in without a hitch. I ran into a problem with my first motor install into a GVR4 because the donor block came from a 90 FWD Turbo. I has left the FWD motor brackets on the engine.

It depends on whet you consider the motor mounts. There's the mounts that bolt to the crossmembers and unibody. There's some brackets that bolt to the block. The front and rear roll stopper that bolt to the front and rear crossmembers, have the same part number in CAPS. The rubber transmission mount that bolts tot he passenger side unibody has a different part number, but that's because of the extra support for the MAS? that's welded onto it. The L shaped mount that bolts onto the engine and unibody on the driver's side also has a different part number, but it does fit. Like I said, it worked for dropping a motor into my Talon, no reason why it shouldn't work in reverse. If the block is from a DSM, check to see if the brackets have been changed out.

I'm sorry, my memory failed me again. Way back when I tried to put a FWD-T block into the GVR4 and those roll stopper brackets are different. I ended up buying both brackets from Mitsu.

I'll have to disagree with BluFalcon here: according to my copy of CAPS the rear roll stopper brackets for M/T 1G AWDs / GVR4 are the same: MD136195. But the front roll stopper brackets are different [that does not preclude interchangeability]: 1G AWD MD133347, GVR4 MD133344. The A/Ts and FWD-Ts are different altogether.

Is that clearer? Sorry for the confusion.
