wow that a heck of a tick .
first thing i`d try is remove the belt and try it again .dont run it long obviously as the fan wont be running .
if the sound isnt there during that test then its something along the belts path .

if its still there then you at least know its nothing in the rotation parts up front .

do you have the ohc(overhead cam) engine?that could be the timing chain death rattle ....i dont have that engine so i wouldnt know but if you do thats something thats a very common failure .if it is the timing chain rattle on the ohc then get it fixed right away or engine damage could occur when it breaks .

I would be interested in the solution as well because occasionally I hear the exact same sound.

When I first got my sport my engine made that same sound when I would first start it. Was the front chain tensioner. changed it and no more noise
