Default Loud Clunk when starting after checking for sludge

I opened up my valve cover to look inside for sludge and put it all back together and also replaced the spark plugs and now when I get a loud bang/clunk up front on the passenger side. I'm not sure what could have happened. I pulled the two plugs that run along side the valve cover, one that plugs into a sensor and another that is I think for the pcv with the run ring around it. It sounds like its from the intake area but i'm not sure. Any ideas?

Is it possible that it could be a engine or tranny mount? Anyone?
