Hemi 5.7 L ticking and loud immediately after timing chain and oil pump replacement

5.7 L 2005 Dodge Hemi Just replaced timing chain and oil pump Bolted timing cover, added oil and started car. No other accessories attached. The car makes a ticking sound and hisses when turned off. I initially forgot to plug in the camshaft sensor but it is plugged in now. Only Error code P0340

I have started the car two times for 1 minute each time since I changed the timing chain and oil pump with new parts. The first time I started the car, I forgot to plug in the camshaft sensor. The second time I started the car, the sensor was plugged in. Both times, the engine sounded like it does in the video. Should I assemble the rest of the components and drive the car for a bit until the camshaft code goes away and hopes that fixes the problem? Is the oil pump working properly? I am pretty sure I installed it correctly and it is new. I am not sure what to do. if I have to take the timing cover off again, I would prefer to do it now. Thanks in advance for the help.

well it doesn't sound bad, the sucking noise is just the air filter not being hooked up. I would run it and see if it settles down as long as oil pressure is good
