Whoah lots of advice to take in, cheers guys.
I'm going to get it replaced for free hopefully, but if it breaks again I'll get a genuine ford one.

that is surprising for repco, everything from there seems to be getting more and more expensive every time I talk to them

repco is crap they wanted over $2000 for a auto box for my car, so there are no companys who make stronger aftermarket ones?

The old ones probably wouldn't hold the weight of the engine :P

Maybe the new repco mounts are designed so you can "mount" the engine in your living room and look at it :P

DONT WELD YOUR ENGINE MOUNTS.. i'm saying this coz of the legal reasons, etc... i'm saying it because, at one point when i was making my exhaust, i had it mashed against the body and it transmitted all the vibrations to the body and ITS HORRIBLE. it really isnt worth it.
