I'm kind of surprised none of you think that the six plus feet of chain right under the front surface of the engine just might be making some noise.

There are tensioners so there is so slack in the chain, the chain it self has followers or a guide rail that is pushed on by the tensioner

I have a 2012 with the same noise everyone is hearing. Odd thing is, mine does not make noise until it warms up and the noise gets louder with increase in rpm. Also sounds like a single rocker etc.?? Taking it in on Thursday, did not get a warm and fussy from the service manager. I recently bought it with 23,000 miles.
