The MityMount web site scares me.
I have zero experience with the product. Maybe they're everything a person could want in a mount, and more...
I look at the photos, and the "cutaway" drawing; and I get REAL SUSPICIOUS.
I see what "could" be flat-head screws and countersunk holes with some rubber in-between as an insulator in the cutaway drawing. The drawing is done without showing the threads on the screws, though. (so the two screws and the base metal appear to be a single piece.)
I'm seeing what looks like a couple of flat-head screws (which would go into a countersunk hole) in the center of the motor mount photo. The screws seem to have a recessed (allen socket??? Torx socket???) wrenching surface.
First Guess: The Mity Mounts are Made-in-India (or China) ordinary rubber mounts with a couple of screws threaded into them to control separation.
IF (big IF) this is the case, a handy person could duplicate it by buying a pair of ordinary $9 motor mounts, and four high-strength fine-thread flathead screws and jam nuts--perhaps 5/16 or maybe 3/8, I suppose; and drilling 'n' tapping 'n' countersinking appropriately.
Seems unusual that the company "headquarters" is in California

Most aftermarket mounts are produced overseas, and the quality of rubber and production varies greatly.
Yet nowhere on the web site do they claim MityMounts are "Made in USA".
This [stock sandwich motor mount] design typically provides good isolation from engine vibrations but stretches under acceleration. This wastes horsepower
Power is transmitted without excess motion and resultant power loss.
How much power is lost due to motor mount distortion??? "Not enough to notice" would be my guess.
BK 6021054, $11.00/pair from NAPA.
Note the two flathead screws, one is mostly hidden by the flange of the mount.
CH2, $129 (presumably for the pair) from Dynatech
Might be worth some follow-up before spending that much money for motor mounts. If I'm right about this, they don't have $29 in materials; really, it's between $10 and $20 for the pair of mounts (probably less) and a few dollars for hardware--screws and perhaps jam nuts; plus the labor to install the screws--and they are getting more than $100 in gross profits per pair. I call that "excessive"!
