It's lifter tick. Its annoying because itll go away for some time, then all of a sudden show up again. To get rid of it you need a better oil pump. I havent looked at RB20 stuff for a long time, but if you can throw an N1 pump on it, it should help with your frustration.

Will it be okay if it ticks lil but just as long as there's oil pressure?

Well, it certainly doesn't seem fatal.
