Default Do you need to tune a JDM engine block?

I recently just swapped my engine block from my 02 WRX to a 98-00 EJ20T JDM engine block and was wondering if it is necessary for a tune? The engine runs like it should and it is not throwing codes for anything but I have been noticing a tick. I have looking almost everywhere to see if someone has asked this question before but I have not found anything. Any information will help, thanks.

What all was swapped? Just the short block? The long block? Etc?

A tick from where? It could be a number of things. Valves,Injectors, Timing belt tensioner or an Idler, bearing ect...

It sounds like its coming from the passenger side of the block, I know a tune wouldnt fix a tick but I was thinking not tuning it could be the cause of the tick. I swapped the long block. The only thing that is off the stock engine is the intake manifold.
