Default Weird sound from the engine

https://vimeo.com/316415932

I've got a weird sound coming from my jdm hawkeye sti

Not sure if it knocking or it's timing belt related

Any idea what it could be,sounds like it's coming from near the turbo

Thanks

i find them pretty easy to be honest
use the right tools and no shortcuts
I’ve not come across this type of problem before a loose spark plug but I guess we learn sumat new everyday bum mechanics imo

seems it’s had bad workmanship

wouldn’t l8ke to think how the rest of the vehicle has been maintained and worked on in its life even if it is a “fresh” import but that’s just my opinion and thinking
