Default TR6060 MG9 transmission mount and Crossmember

Hey folks - Iíve been searching high and low for some possible combinations to work with a Detroit Speed subframe. Seems no one makes a kit that works with confidence. The MG9 TR6060 (2015) mount bolts up to the side of the transmission. Does anyone know of a combination that works well with the Detroit subframe? I have the Detroit engine mounts with standard setback.

Maybe I'm misunderstanding the question. Are you looking for a crossmember that works with the DSE frame for a TR6060?

I dont know specifically for the 6060, but my T56 Magnum works well on the hooker blackheart crossmember in my DSE frame.

PART# 12626HKR

Can see it a bit in this pic (old pic so can get more recent if you'd like).

Thank you for the reply but the TR6060 is longer and the mount actually attaches to the sides. This has become the issue. I wish I knew for sure that I could use this cross member since I have the headers . I may have to purchase it and do some fabbing. I thought for sure someone would of solved this issue by now.

Is something like this an option?

Hey Will - I figured it all out. The motor and transmission came from Australia so itís actually a Holden LSA 6.2. Basically everything is the same as the ZL1 LSA including the hood. I called TREMEC and they were able to confirm the transmission cross referenced a MG9 with the same guts and gears. I do have to fabricate something on the crossmember. I went with the hooker blackheart that fits my DS subframe and I will just have to get crafty with my welder .

Here are the 2 mounts I have found showing the difference. What is weird, I have a LSA and 6060 out of a 14 zl1 and I haven't taken the crossmember off yet but I swear it doesnt look like the mg9 on the right
