Pass. mount is the usual suspect for vibration issues, but from your post it looks like a lot going on at once so it might be something else...

Was it ever "smooth" after the engine install? If not, you might try the loosen & retighten trick on the mounts to get the assembly centered without any "torque" on the mounts from tightening one then moving the assembly to tighten another. Removing & checking that pass. one when you do it for any obvious issues....

Second thought would be on whether the new engine itself is running smoothly, just something to think about before going ahead with a new mount to try to cure the vibration.

Luck!
