Default Tranny and engine mounts

Hi Folks, I have replaced 6k miles ago tranny and engine mounts.
Still thinking its shaking to much. had only b200F before and this is the (fabulous) B200E.
Have a look at this video filmed by me today just after cold start.
Any suggestion or comment?

It looks and sounds like you have an air leak.

I would replace the injector seals and the bucket seals

I would also replace the inlet manifold gasket

Once you have done that adjust the fuel mixture on the metering unit

Thanks for the tip! How can you notice it ?
Is there any symptom I should look for when driving?
Car runs great both on petrol and lpg.
Replaced the injectors 30k miles ago with brand new injectors.
Cam buckets? Do you mean I should check valve clearance?
Why are you also suggesting the inlet manifold seal?
Many thanks. Very appreciate it!
Also I am going to drive the car for 3k miles on Monday, hope I dont get in trouble

It sounds uneven. That is normally down to air leaks.

You can test for leaks by spraying around the joints and around the injectors with carb cleaner

The injectors have a seal around the injector and another around the plastic bucket. Both are prone to leaking.

Is the shaking more noticable on LPG or petrol?

I can't still source the problem.
After 5k miles on it I have now decided to replace engine mounts.
Got Heavy duty mounts. Next week will replace them and see if it gets better.
