Im gonna go with a failing rod bearing. Mine made the exact same noise before my motor died. The ticking went on about a week before it actually started to knock. I hope im wrong, but you never know. Good luck man

I learned when you have something ticking/knocking in your engine compartment, it's a bad idea to rev it up. Just sayin.

Could be oil filter, oil type, injector, lifter, something not to worry about at all. Kinda hard to tell in video as opposed to in person. Ticking shouldn't really occur but as long as it doesn't start knocking or thudding you shouldn't have to worry about something serious like a rod. Still though, figure it out in case it IS something to worry about.

I was already going to replace the engine because I knew the previous owner gave it hell. So revving it would have made no difference. This engine was gonna blow no matter what.

The first route the OP should test.

filter, and proper oil weight.

I see you're in Florida, where at? maybe some of us are close enough to pass by and give you a hand(no homo? lol)

EDIT: good god this is from last year, wtf... NVM! lol
