T-5 to TF999 mounting issues

well got engine installed yesterday and I must have wrong trans mount or torque plate cause the trans wont even drop down enough to hit the skid plate before engine starts to hit fire wall as it pivots. I'm using the same torque plate from T-5 and new mounts but its not even close. Anyone have a picture of their auto trans mount?

If I had to guess, your missing the "w" bracket used in auto mount applications

When I did mine I also had to redrill my pan.

fixed that problem, went and got some 2" square stock and got the trans mounted to the skid plate. Its probably a little taller then the stock "W" bracket but I can always drop the skid plate a bit. I offset my drill holes to allow the trans mount to line up perfect with the lowest or most rearward mounting holes.
