Question all-in-one transmission mount replacement?

I'm have the one-piece transmission mount on my '86. I also have a later Carrera mount with the replaceable mounts which are the same part number as the engine mounts. As the rubber on the all-in-one mount is getting hard I tried a test-fit of the Carrera mount (which is beefier than the Turbo mount). The holes can be drilled to match, but the rear of the mount bumps the tail of the transmission because of the added width. I can certainly cut this back and weld up a strengthening piece.

I wonder if anyone has done this before or if maybe I'm missing another option. Given the cost of the factory part, (over $1000) I am highly motivated to have another option!
