Check the bolts on torque converter. If they are lose it will sound like knocking.

Yes double check the bolts. Also are you sure the converter is seated right.

Did you use the correct torque coverter bolts? Some times there isn't enough clearance for standard headed bolts.

checking converter bolts but i double checked they were tight when i installed it . there is also a whining noise that doesnt start until its moving and it sounds worse when coasting .

the torque converter did go in kinda hard and took alot of messing with to get it in but when compared to the old trans it looked like it was seated just as deep

i checked the torque converter bolts are tight and they are the original bolts.
it makes the sound whenever the engine is running in all gears and theres more vibration then before the swap. i got a rebuilt trans that was supposed to be for the stroker im gonna try. while its off is it safe to put a bellhousing and cps on and run the engine without a torque converter or trans attached to make sure the engine isnt causing the vibration ?
