Do you know what this noise is?

Hi All,

Very active forum lurker here, though seldom do I actually post.

Within the last month I have noticed an odd noise every morning I start up the evo. This ONLY happens during the first startup of the day and usually lasts about 10 seconds or so. Can someone give me an idea of what this may be? Car is stock engine wise (08GSR), all I have is the kaizen pully upgrade. Also, the car runs totally fine otherwise (knocks on wood).

Link to video (Noise starts at the 11 second mark)

And I will be having it looked at, but wanted to see if I could get some insight here first.

Thanks!

It's your car wanting you to become more active on the forums. That's all.

It's loud but you're loving every second of it.

And to answer JDMEvil, no I had the pulley kit installed in February, so it has been quite a few months since.

I will try to get a better video tomorrow morning.
