Motor mounts

Looking into getting a set of new motor mounts and was wondering if the 05-14 GT mounts will fit our 3.7s?

They look exactly the same but I'm not sure

If you check with Ford, you will find that the 5.0 and 3.7 share motor mounts. They just have different engine flanges to move the engine mount point to the same three dimensional location.

Why are you looking at motor mounts? Need something stiffer because you are having shifter sloppiness, or excessive engine movement (that would be really scary considering how much these buck around on brand new mounts).

Proving to my fellow racers that the disdain that some GT drivers have for V6 drivers is unfounded, one results archive at a time since 2013.

I am doing everything I can to improve the shifting and stiffen up the driveline. I've read around that the motor mounts are one of the many issues regarding missed shifts. Is the NVH really that bad?

they're the same for v6 and 5.0
I plan on installing some when i swap in the built motor.
NVH isn't an issue, so it'll be whichever gives me the most clearance for my sheetmetal intake

It may not be an issue for you or your build, but I am asking if the NVH is bad from other peoples perspective who have this mod.

the only part of the NVH which I object to (and there is a fair amount of an increase) is when the dual mass flywheel starts doing it's vibration it feels like mild rumble strips. It is rather noticeable then. It did amplify my main rattle sound (rear window?) but for me it's OK. It ain't a Camary.

Chicago to Whatley MA = 900 miles join us on my cruise and I'll let you try it B4 you get them, I'll even bring my old ones so if you want to have a back up set in case you get wigged out in the long run by the noise you'll still be able to save yourself lots of time/effort and cut your oem's out.

I installed these from late model restoration to my 12' Boss and it's barely noticeable.
