The one-piece engine mount has a couple of advantages over stock mounts:
1. Since it is an aftermarket piece it is usually lighter by it being milled out (usually the center of the mount is milled out)
2. It usually has cooling fins for better heat dissipation
3. It makes it easier to align the motor to the gears (more convenient)
4. It stiffens the chasis somewhat
In my personal opinion, I would have to say that #3 and #4 are the main advantages of having a one piece engine mount, plus it just plain looks better than stock monts.
