Yeah.....I think they were over torqued to begin with......that idea plus the fact that the daytime temperatures were hovering right around 35 degrees contributed to the lugs being tightly locked in place. The major part of the job was removing the bolts which secure the motor mount to the block.....you're basically working blind, and the other difficult part was maneuvering the mount assembly around it'* confined space in an effort to gain access to the top plate bolts so that I could disassemble the mount (four parts lower main mount, insulator, heat shield, top plate).....once I got the mount minimalized, it came out fairly easy.
