Default EJ251 Engine Noise

Hey was wondering what you all think might be the cause of this new sound my engine is making. It's as if a new tapping sound is occurring, not at idle but at lower to mid rpms.

The car is stopped, clutch pedal depressed and transmission in neutral in the video, after a cold start. No check engine light. Started hearing it after a 900 km road trip. Engine oil level is full, oil changed recently 5W30.

Car has a seperate transmission noise which has been getting worse lately and original clutch.

Thanks for your help.

Sorry dude, I think you'll need to try to get a higher quality video somehow, either borrow someone else's phone/go pro, etc. And take a vid from inside the car and under the hood, may help diagnosis.

Is it only when the engine is cold? Is it heavy/solid sounding or light and rattle-y?
