I would check the flywheel to make sure it isn't warped, some companies will ship them that way once in a while. Also, did you use an alignment tool when you installed you clutch? And does it vibrate when you rev it while the car is parked or is this only while you are driving?
that is wrong the front half of crank is balanced but the back is not because of the 1 piece rear seal design but u can buy just a weight that goes on crank before flywheel it only goes on one way cant get it wrong and can be used with at or mt.
