Big block motor mount offset

Going to be putting a 454 in my 69 Camaro soon and I am going to buy some new motor mounts. I am going to buy the big block frame mounts and the engine mounts. Question I have is which of the two mounts (frame or engine) actually makes the off set towards the passenger side?

Thanks in advance

frame. Driver side is taller than the passenger side.

I purchased my reproduction BB engine frame mounts from Classic Industries and experienced no fitment issues. Although some will recommend Rick's First Generation Camaro as properly fitting as well. Either of these parts distributors is an excellent source.
