It's a constant sound won't go away after warm up. I know it could be anything but wondering if just listening would give a clue. I'll be running more testing before ordering parts though. Feel free to guess. That's actually great help to narrow down my search and tests. Thanks

My guess this sound is coming from the Supercharger Pully.

It almost definitely appears to be a pulley (supercharger belt tensioner?). They go out and it's a good idea to replace them all. You can get a complete set of billet pulleys from Shardul.

It's a quite straight forward DIY replacement. I recommend staying with the original factory parts. I buy all my service/maintenance parts from AutohausAZ.com.

Hard to pinpoint it on the video. Run to Harbor Freight and buy a cheap scope. https://www.harborfreight.com/mechan...ope-63691.html

Should be able to figure out exactly which pulley is the issue.
