Angry short video clip of engine sound on 2008 wrx new car help

Hi guys, here's a link I made https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jK81-fgDAFU
to a short video clip I took of my car. I just got the car two days ago. It's a 2008 wrx and when I looked at the car it sounded fine. I had the dealership get the timing belt and water pump done for me included in the price of the deal because the car is at 103,000 miles. After I brought it home I started it up and popped the hood then heard this weird rattling kinda noise. Sorry for the bad sound quality and shaky video but I'm guessing some of you will be able to give me some ideas as to what this could be. I really can't tell where it's coming from... it's almost like there are two separate noises occurring now... one is a rattle and the other is a whoosh kinda noise... I am going to have them look at it again but I would like some ideas before I bring it back in because I don't want to get told it's nothing and not have an answer.

Thanks! I appreciate any ideas

One of those sounds like a vacuum leak somewhere, but i'm sure that you looked around for hoses not connected to anything.

Did you find out what the issue was from?

I found out when I took it back to the dealer they discovered it was the timing belt tensioner. They didn't replace it the first time so they did it again.
