Yup, that's ALL that counts when it comes to automotive mounts, the
"damentions."  Hmm, the dampening of solid rubber mounts an "upgrade" vs
hydraulic mounts, just leave collapsed OEM mounts in and save the money. 
Or better yet, if they're the same, just put in OEM I-5 mounts, now
there's a smokin deal, $50 each. I put some 200T mounts I had in a 5KS,
perfect fit...if only the engine wasn't hitting the hood.  Track density:
"marked increase in vibration from the drive train", two words:  Hockey
Pucks, cheap and versatile.
If you're going to track the car, or want to test those molar fillings,
go for it.  
For those who prefer the V8Q for it's refinements, solid rubber mounts
might not be an "upgrade" they'd want.
As for what manifolds, hood scoops or dingo balls fit your car, an old
Gaelic word says it best: Dilligaf.
