Help figuring out what this noise is?

This noise happened after doing a timing belt, harmonic balencer belt, water pump, and tensioners. It seems to be coming from the left side of the valve cover where I am pointing the camera most of the time. You can hear it clearly after I let off the throttle about 15 seconds in. I dont believe the timing is off because other than this noise the car runs great better than it did before the belt change it seems, no symptoms of timing being off other than this noise. I have put several hundred miles on the car with this noise out of necessity and well it hasn't blown up yet so I guess thats good. Any idea what it could be? I thought I had left some debris under the valve cover but I pulled it off and everything looked fine. I can get another head for this car for 200 bucks but I would rather not torch this one and I really dont want to damage the lower end. Its a very inconsistent noise it gets louder then quieter then disappears completely there doesn't seem to be any pattern to this noise, sometimes the noise will persist when I rev the engine sometimes it will disappear im very confused any help would be appreciated. Car is a 1994 honda prelude si 2.3L with 200,000 miles on it.
