Whats this ticking noise?

I shot a short video and uploaded to YouTube, here is the link:

I can hear a faint ticking sound, mostly clearly from front wheel well. The ticking is always there. I don't know if it varies with the rpm though.
Let me know what u guys think, thank you!

The exhaust manifold bolts tend to break and make a ticking sound. Normally when cold until the metal expands to fill the gap. Im doing a set of bolts on a wk 4.7 right now. My 4.7 has one broken bolt but im too lazy to worry about it yet.

Just had my manifold and gasket repaired on driver side. Very quiet now.

Also think I have improved about .5 MPG on the computer, since repair, around town.

The ticking sound has something to do with the EVAP system if it is coming from the front left wheel well area. Right above the tire is the actual device that ticks, next to the brake fluid reservoir. I'm fairly certain both the 4.0 and 4.7 engines have this.

You can hear it starting at about ~20 seconds in.

Ignore my alternator bearing that's starting to go bad and noisy clutch fan, haha.
