2013 camaro v6 engine tick or exhaust leak?

Hi, I'm new to this site. This video is of my 2013 camaro v6 and I was texting to get some feedback on what this noise could be. I've googled it multiple times and searched threads and all amd I'm just wondering what you all think it is. Everythi g I've read says a noise is normal that it's the injectors or something. I've had the car a little over a year and have always noticed some kind of sound but have been unsure about it. Sounds like it's coming from the drivers side toward the back of the engine. To me it kinda sounds like an exhaust leak but I have no idea really. Any feedback would be appreciated. Thank you.

I'm pretty sure the high pressure fuel pump (HPFP) is on the drivers side, not sure though. The HPFP can make like a clicking noise. Common with direct injection.

I have a 2014 1LT Automatic (V6), and it sounds very similar to yours. I thought it was just the normal sound of the engine, but you have me wanting to run out there and listen to it again.
Man, I have a laundry list of "What's that sound?" going on with my ride. So far it hasn't affected the performance. So far...

Normal engine noise, like said above you are hearing the high pressure fuel pump do its thing.
