That sounds exactly like mine. Acceleration and deceleration are totally fine. It's just idle and partial throttle. I find it strange this is occurring with such low kms, must just be bad luck.

Have you checked the rocker torque settings yet? If not, I'd have a look. Could be an easy fix.

My sisters jeep sounded exactly the same and i thought immediatly that it was a rocker or a valve. IT WAS THE WATER PUMP NO JOKE!!! pull the pully off and check the bearing by wiggling it. Took us forever to figure that one out.
