New Engine... Bad Noise!!

Hello everyone,
I just put a rebuilt engine in from ATK... This is my first time putting an engine in. Everything went great except there is a bad clank sound coming from where the engine and bellhousing is coming from. Its hard to tell what its coming from. I have an automatic and it only does when in gear. It does it a little bit when in park and at higher RPM's. I'm not sure if i did something wrong. I'm thinking its the torque converter. I'm sure i installed it correctly any ideas????

Have you:
1. Rremoved the flexplate to converter bolts.
2. Slid back the converter.
3. Started the engine.
4. Listened for the noise?

This isonlates the noise between the engine and the rest of the drive train. That's where I'd start.
