Is this the timing issue I hear

I was given this 2010 ClubmanS by my good buddy who passed away last December. The real issue is that he bought the car new and todate it only has 6,788 miles on the odometer. It has had the oil changed three times and have made two long distance trips in the car, from Oregon to Phoenix and back again. I have upgraded to an modified AEM intake, put a turbo blanket on and changed the exhaust to Magnaflow.
I have never really listened to the motor when cold and the hood is up but did today. This is a short video of the noise. I tried to use a long screwdriver and listen for the noise and just couldn't hear anything conclusive.
So, after listening to the noise is my next option to remove the valve cover and see what's up????

Could be the timing chain or maybe the vacuum pump. But I am a Gen 1 guy. A gen 2 guy should be along that will be more help.

I'm hearing a lot of fuel injector noise which is common with the R56 HPFP and the DI engine....

There does seem to be a muted background rattle... Hard to tell if it's coming from some of the modded parts you've added making contact with something in the engine bay...

That muted rattle does seem more pronounced as you move over the timing chain bulge in the valve cover.

Find out if your MINI has the latest chain tensioner... The dealer documents this in the history of the work they've done so they should be able to call it up on their computer...

The part isn't too expensive if it needs replacement...

Thanks for responding.
The parts that were replaced are rattle free and I welded the complete exhaust rather than use clamps. I also discarded the OE turbo shield and the AEM head shield has ceramic coating on the bottom and is tight and safety wired.
Since I did get the Mini from the original owner I have all of the paperwork associated with the car from the delivering Mini dealer which was Mini of Loveland, CO and the original dealer which was Mini of Concord, CA. It even has the "Certificate of Adoption" which is dated 4/21/2010. Interestingly it still has the paper stencil for painting the floor of the garage that says "For Mini Parking Only".
I have all of the service work done on the car and the two things that were replaced...one by the Mini which was the water pump..this was done in 2012 and the battery in 2015.
Since the nearest Mini dealer is over 60 miles away I'll give them a call. I was worried about the timing chain rub rails breaking although I know you replace the tensioner I didn't realize there was an updated one.

MINI went through 4-5 attempts at getting it right...

Thanks for the part number.
I think I may just change the complete timing chain and parts and get it out of the way.

It's an automatic.

Also, took it out and drove it yesterday since it was a beautiful day and whenever I come to a stop, the motor looses rpm, then regains it again almost like a carburetor would if the floats weren't set correctly. Since this car has been siting for a month or two at a time and has only been driven 6900 miles in 7 years I'm going to run some injector cleaner through the tank. The other thing I noticed when I installed the CravenSpeed dip stick is that the oil level is beyond the last hole...I will be draining the oil and replacing the filter.

One last thing, when I started it up to put it on the ramps for the oil change I let it idle, opened the bonnet and while running I unscrewed the oil cap on the valve cover...as soon as I opened the cap I could hear a very pronounced knocking/rattling noise. When I screwed the cap back down I could hardly hear it...is that the vacuum pump?

Thanks for your help.

Up until a couple of years ago this is what I worked on and raced. A single 850 cfm carburetor ontop of 408ci Ford...turned 9.80's in the 1/4 @ 136mph. Made about 655hp/554lbft at the flywheel.
If you were born during WWII then you can say you're older than dirt...just like me.
