    I don't know about the monuting heights, but the Speedtech crossmember is super adjustable. It is slotted and the brackets can flip around, so many different transmissions and locations can be accounted for. I have one in my car for the T56. I had an aftermarket T56 behind my BBC and now I have an LS1 T56 behind an LSx engine and I have the engine set back 1.25" referencing the bellhousing to a stock SBC/BBC location. This crossmember has been able to do everything I have needed it to do. and plenty of room for exhaust Here it is at $359, it was a lot less when I bought it from ATS though
    Couple pictures of what I mean
    You can flip the brackets left/right to get more adjustability out of the setup too.

    The slotted bracket mounts using the stock crossmember holes, then the billet end piece slides in the bracket, and the holes for the crossmember are slotted too, so you can adjust in/out. If you look at the Speedtech page it should be a little more evident what I am talking about.

    That picture is actually showing it assembled wrong, I think, unless I put it in the car wrong. I don't remember getting instructions with it

    This photo of the 12614HKR Hooker 4L60-4L75 crossmember might show it a little more clearly...if someone is installing one of the Hooker crossmembers on a subframe that is out of the car for restoration or repair then the holes in the tabs resting on the top of the subframe can be drilled straight down through the subframe for installation.

    If the subframe is not going to be removed from the car for any reason during the project, then the crossmembers can be side mounted to the subframe rails using the included angle brackets.
