The etc goes through a self test prior to start up. after start up your probably just hearing your egr solenoid which is right next to the t/b

Agreed, it's likely the EGR switch clicking. Also, since the new HEMI's are throttle by wire, the throttle body could be going through a homing or sweeping test through its range.

Tstat are heat actuated and open like a snail in a drag race. Also shut the same way too. you wont hear a click.
