How bad is having a crack at the body mount where the engine bay and the trunk meet, (under the engine coolant overflow bottle)?

Not good. All the rear loads will be through the bulkhead plates now. There'll be a loss of longitudinal torsional stiffness which you'll feel.

Best to fix it asap. Not with the original bobbins because they don't work well in shear.  Do the repair with plates sandwiching the fiberglass.
