Help deeded diagnosing a chirping noise in the engine bay!

Hello everyone,
I've recently purchased a 2000 Mustang V6 with 160k miles as a project, but I'm loving it so much that I have a feeling it may end up be my daily driver soon. Now, it has a few things that need to be fixed, but the most urgent thing is this annoying chirping noise that I can't for the life of me find out what it is! I originally thought it was the belt tensioner but replaced that to no avail, and the previous owner thought it was the water pump yet that still hasn't done anything to fix the noise. The only thing I can think of is that it may be the camshaft synchronizer. I embedded videos, and as you can see from the interior view once you press on the accelerator the sound goes away a bit and comes back down once the car starts idling again. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
PS: Can a mod please change the title to say "needed"? I must have been typing a bit too fast! lol
