R34 rb25det clicking/ticking when warm

Hi guys.

I saw many threads about this similar problem, but the diffrence with them all is the fact that mine does the sound only when it gets warm instead of cold. It sounds like someone was holding a small zip-tie against a fastly spinning bycycle wheel spokes. has sort of "plastic" sound to it, so it's not the lifters.
I can hear it when it idles but when driving normally, other noises kill it.  It can be heard in the car when accelerating harder.
It appears to be coming from driver side of the engine. To me it feels like its coming from the side of the engine, but there's nothing there to be causing this? It'ts not injector tick, as that can be heard separately. 

I tried describing my issue as detailed as i could, hopefully someone has a clue. Something simple to check before i start pulling major things apart? 

Thank you.

Let the car warm up and unplug your VCT solenoid and see if it stops?

Very easy thing to check/access

check all the drive belts on the front of the engine, there might be a nick in one of them or it may be de-laminating and the noise only occurs once the belts have warmed up
