No problem... I've found a long sleeve shirt.. and a good pair of mech gloves helps when dealing with a running engine...
Think about it this way... if you tighten them to 16ft/lbs with no weight on them.. then add the tranny... you are pretty much increasing that spec by the tranny.. to a degree of course... but still.. its has the pressure of the tranny on it.. plus the 16 you put on there...* that would transfer a little more vib than normal in my mind...*
If what I said doesnt work.. I'd call UUC.. and talk to them.. sometimes its the little things that you over look.. and its amazing how often that happens...

Mine took around 500 miles to break in and had quite a bit of vibration while accelerating. 75 mph in 4th gear = my cure all for tranny mounts.

What it was was actually them loosening on the bolt a little bit then I had to retorque them. They're the reds with enforcers.
In my case I think the breaking is was the bushing working the grease I lubed the TME with to slide it on.

i didn't really notice any need for break-in for my UUC mounts (red) and TMEs.
one thing to consider is maybe you already had an inherent balance issue with your new flywheel/plate/clutch assembly that wasn't noticeable with the stock mounts, but the addition of the UUC parts just made the NVH more noticeable?
