460 swap from a 4cyl

I am currently in the process of dropping a 460 in to my mustang. I have ordered all the necessarry swap parts with a few exceptions but it was brought up to me that when putting the engine into a 4cyl body the swap motor mounts will not match to the frame. has anyone done a swap like this if so let me know what i can do about this problem.

Would a crossmember swap fix it? What year Mustang do you have?
