Does it make the noise only while driving?

Are you sure that the trans is filled with gear oil?

to both, tho I'm working today and tomorrow, we are going to get her up on the ramp on Friday morning at my local garage to recheck that oil. Cant see any oil stains around the engine tho

I see, thanks. That would be the first thing to check. Some weren't filled to capacity from the factory and that can give you some noises out of it. It sounds like it wasn't making the noise before the clutch job and some oil may have leaked out when the trans was pulled.
