Ep3 type R loud rattle noise in engine bay?

Hi guys, when the car first fires up theres a tiny rattle, then it idles perfectly fine but when you put even the tiniest amounts of revs on the rattle gets louder and louder, the cars drives as normal but im avoiding driving the car because of this, a few people have said it could be the vtec solenoid or the timing chain? But it looks as though thr timing chain has recently been done before i got the car, any ideas what it could be? Enginr warning lights on but thats it. Cheers, Jack

Have you checked the code to see why the engine light is on?

Corresponds to VTC malfunction according to a quick search.
