Is this sound a failed DISA? Or..

I attached a video. The ticking is just the injectors, but there is a cyclic groaning, I think perhaps is the DISA valve I have been hearing about? (I put the camera near that area and the sound level does increase) If not maybe it is..

Super annoying noise, you'd think I was pulling up in a civic if you didn't see it :/ lol

I would say so.
Take it out and look at it (2 screws). There is a $60-80 repair kit. New one is about 300.
Talk to this guys.
Good luck
