Default 2012 C30 T5 RDESIGN KPAX Manual Transmission

Was driving my Volvo a few weeks ago when I loud clunking sound started happening, along with a feeling of sluggish acceleration.
Brought it in and turns out it was a broken engine mount. I forget which side they mentioned, however I was told that it was too soon for this to happen (60k miles).
I drive local streets mostly so I am not stuck in stop and go, fast to slow freeway traffic.
Mechanics told me it could be from all the torque delivered by KPAX GT kit. I really enjoy driving a Volvo and this car especially but not too pleased with the all-too-soon pricey out of warranty repair. And the possibly of similar future repairs.
Has anyone experienced this issue? Do I just suck it up because Volvo?
