Engine Sound Help?!

so in my other thread i re did the seals and all is well but now im having an issue with my engine idling sound being really weird

IT IS NOT FLUCTUATING THAT MUCH THATS NOT WHAT IM HERE FOR

im wondering if i need a valve adjustment or if the cams are off

here is a vid i made at 3am with my cell phone sorry for the bad quality

Re: Engine Sound Help?!

that doesn't sound like valves or cams imo. sounds more like tensioner or timing belt. thats just me though i don't really know. where exactly is teh sound coming from?

That's what I thought so I undid the power steering just to gear it and it sounded fine but does that explain why the exhaust is sucking in and out
