Gen II vs III motor mounts

Im wondering if the motors mounts are interchangable? I am trying to compare my gen II and III motor mounts but I cant find my old ones to look at. Does anyone know if they use the same mounting point on the frame? From what I can tell the gen IIIs push the motor back much more compared to the gen II and that is exactly what I want to do. If I swap motor mounts will the tilt/angle of the motor be the same?

I know they are different but they have the same design as far as motor mounting and frame mounting. I just need to know if the only thing different is the location of the motor. The gen IIs have the motor mounting holes in the center of the frame mount while the gen IIIs push the motor back towards the firewall and are offset from the center of the frame mount.
