The one's I purchased when I did my swap were I believe 1/4". In a case like this where you will only do it once....overbuild.
Poly will last you longer....but for engine mounts, I'm partial to rubber if you can find it. I've talked with several people who went poly bushings and were suprised with the amount of vibration transfered to the frame, and ultimately to the vehicle and passengers with poly bushings. I think they are great for steering/suspension ect...but I was happy with rubber for engine/tranny mounts. Personal preference I guess.
