I think I have this noise too. I notice it if I remove the trim/cowling that goes over the pedals and under the steering wheel. It becomes very noticeable then under acceleration on my RHD car.

How come you're pulling the engine? You've already done the coolant pipe and fixed your gearbox haven't you ?
