couldn't make your link, but just off the bat am going to say you've made your belts too tight. There should be 3/8 play, unless you have a tensioning arm, check the alignment, there may be a few micro screws for doin' this because no one wants a squeaky belt!

It sounds like a bad bearing. Remove the belt and spin each pulley to see which one it is. You can also use a stethoscope but be careful of rotating parts.

Could be piston slap... My '03 sounds like a diesel when it's cold...
