All you can do with noise over the computer is take suggestions like... eliminate accessories simply by removing drive belts. Listen during a quick run for exhaust related causes, Have a helper try and isolate the source of the noise...air intake noise ? valve cover and with oil cap removed noise, lower end noise, valve train noise ? cannot hear it from here, sorry.
