that is what i hear from my 2.2L - a rattling sound, especially under load. It has been diagnosed as a main rod bearing that is going out. I hope your sound is from something else- could be lots of things ... hopefully just some sort of sympathetic vibration sound, or just a non-internal loose part. I hope you dont have a bearing going, that will be a royal PITA.///

the way to test for this is to REV THE SHIT out of the engine... if it gets dramtically worse, then you know its coming apart!! (ask me how i know ;p)
