Buzzy -.-

I have an 03 focus zx3, tend to wonder why my car is buzzy when I first drive it, but after 20 mins or on a warm day it's really not noticeable. When I go 60 I can feel it in the steering wheel, especially on a cold day. I've replaced the motor mounts already, tuneup, etc. Also kinda noisy when I start er up. Any ideas? I also removed the air resonator awhile back, does this "air resonator" make the engine a lot louder while cruising 60 and on? Thanks :-D

Does the sound change with acceleration? If so likely the air resonator deletion. How about any sound change in gear/out of gear coasting?

My bad Don, well its just generally louder, idk if its because its older or what, ive noticed on a cold day when i leave work, it seems it doesnt have as much "get up and go" as it does on a warmer day, and also way less buzzy on a warmer day, the buzziness will vibrate my rear view mirror to the point where the cars behind me are fuzzy lol, also when the focus is cold-ish i will accelerate and at about 30 mph with a steady foot on the pedal the rpm's will surge a lil up and down, but will go away as soon as i get on the main highway. No CEL is on, my focus runs great, i use castrol full synthetic, and am very good with the maintenance, I bought the mounts from rockauto, i forgot what brand i bought, i tried to look online on my account with rockauto, but i ordered them as a guest :(

The buzz come from a non-stock mount. Ford branded part only on the passenger side mount, you've done the same thing dozens of others do to later regret.
