Default ticking noise after replacing gaskets?!

Today, we replaced the intake manifold gaskets, fuel injector O rings, and one injector. After we fired it up it, it was running a little rough (pry getting fuel back into it since all the gas in the rails poured out), after it started running better, I noticed that on the passenger side of the motor, I hear a ticking sounding noise that goes faster as a rev it and slower when the rpms came down. What could this be? A check engine light came on as well, I will be checking it tomorrow.

Everything else seems fine. RPMs are steady, gets normal mpg.

honestly the ticking could be anything from lifter tick to an exhaust leak. Maybe the code will help.....

It threw a couple codes. Throttle position sensor and cyclender 6 misfire. cleared the codes and they havent come back. The ticking noise has gone away, but there is a distinct gas smell in the cab now. When we did the repair, fuel spilt out of the fuel rails, as well as when we pulled the rails, one of the injectors stayed in the as opposed to coming with the rail, which made more fuel spill out. I am hoping that there is just some fuel still sitting in the motor bay somewhere, as opposed to having a leak. My fuel rails are super rusted so it makes me worry that they srung a leak on removal.
