i'd be checking the engine mount. maybe one's bad, allowing engine to lift up when torqued.

x2...

Pop the hood, start the engine, put it in gear, press the brake HARD and give it some gas and see if the engine moves a bunch, if it does your mounts are toast.

Yep, broken mount. The dent in the hood is not 'uncommon'.

If the motor mounts are that bad, I'd be checking the trans mount too. chances are, it's going to need replaced as well.

Yes, you can change them one side at a time. If I remember correctly, it was the passanger side on mine that gave me issues when trying to put the new mount in. I think I had to loosen the starter (or maybe jsut the wires) to get a little extra clearance to get the mount in place.
