Ticking sound

Hey guys I have a 2000 gt and I recently purchased a 4.6 motor from a junk yard and when I installed it and turned it on it had a ticking noise I showed the people who sold me the motor and they took it into the shop to see what it was and they said the motor had forged internals is it true thematvforgrd internals can make a ticking sound?

I've heard other motors with forged internals. I've never heard a ticking sound.

Would you say it is one tick after the other or several ticks making more of a chatter sound?

After I built my 1st engine my lifters always ticked a little bit, but I've heard several built 4,6s that didn't make any kind of tickin or rattlein
