Default Loud ticking under light throttle on new block

My 06 STi spun a bearing a couple of months ago and I just dropped in a new Outfront closed deck block. I have noticed that I have a loud ticking that happens on as soon as I touch the throttle. The sound stops after ~15% throttle and can be heard clearly in-cabin with all windows up and the radio on.

2006 STi - Ticking noise on light throttle - YouTube

I am running all of the same injectors, rails etc.. as my last setup and it did not make nearly this much noise.

I know a lot of Subarus sound like sewing machines which is typically a combination of the injector solenoids and valves but if that is what I am hearing - then why would it be so loud now as opposed to the last block? Anyone have any idea what I am hearing and if there is anything that can be done to quiet it down?

Can't tell much, like where it's coming from. Not a good sound. Hope it's not internal.
