2003 Honda Civic Question: Is there a sequence to tightening motors mounts? 03 EX COUPE 1.7L

I replaced the mounts and inserted energy suspension (front and rear mount)that fit inside the mounts because my engine jerked as I pulled off...(new clutch needed, wanted this done before clutch replacement).Other than the jerking of the engine moving from the bad mounts, there was no shaking what so ever from the vehicle......now at idle the car vibrates enough to where I can see it in the steering wheel. I would like to know if there is a certain way the mounts should be tightened and CAN I GET RID OF THIS VIBRATING?

    Energy suspension bushings are a lot harder than your stock rubber bushings and does not absorb vibrations as well as the stock ones do. They are great to prevent movement but not so good with absorbing vibrations. We do quite a few of engine swaps on hondas and whenever we swap it for a bigger motor we use modified motor mounts which are a lot harder than stock. Vibrates like hell. :) Switch to stock mounts.
