when i put in a new plug at #8 cylinder i didnt gap it. was in a hurry. is their any real serious threat of not gapping a new sparplug to cars specs? its been their for months now and runs fine. though i am hearing a ticking noise more now. which is why im bringing this up. and a sparkplug not gapped right cause a ticking sound?

No big deal....newer plugs come real close....and missing one won't do anything.

could a slightly off gap cause a ticking sound?

Yeah, they come gapped pretty close out of the box, don't worry about the gap. If you have a ticking sound that wasn't there before, maybe a plug or wire isn't tight. If you have the AIR tube, and moved it to change plugs, you might have a gasket leak.
