It's normal mate.

The engine moves as the revs change, you'll always get some movement but the new linkage bushes make it more obvious, old worn ones will take up some of the play and make it less noticeable, whereas the new stiff ones don't have that play so the movement is pretty much instantaneous with the engine

Engine mount problem mate. Mine did exactly the same. When giving it some stick you could feel the gear stick moving in your hand. Mine turned out to be a missing bolt on the front gearbox mount
