Just installed my jbr stage 2 Rmm and the vibrations are letting up after my trip to Charleston (approx. 500miles) but jus wondering if me torquing the **** outa those motor mount bolts (by hand) could be contributing to the nvh?

Negative, Ghost Rider.. only if you overtightened to the point the bolt snapped under load, which I doubt as that bolt's stronger than 99% of us.. double check your work, get under there and check for excessive play..

I’ve got the 88 or 80 JBR 1st gen RMM my vibrations are retarded I also have steeda engine and trans mounts. If you get at the right RPM you’ll feel tour teeth chatter lol. But it’s very possible they’re stage 2 mount is made to brake in and create a normal driving feel while stabilizing the engine. I would worry about it unless you feel the engine rocking or hear a metal on metal sound.

I torqued mine down to 80ftlbs with a torque wrench and i also had nasty vibrations from the rmm, its just the nature of it.
