Timing belt rattle

Hi everybody

Im working an a 2005 is300

I had a timing belt rattle, the belt would vibrate and shake at around 2500 RPMS and above, so I changed the timing belt, timing belt tensioner/pulley and the water pump to see if that would fix it, but i has not.

Does anyone know what it could be ?

Thanks !

PS I checked without the serpentine belt on so its not coming from the accessories

Could be the VVTI pulley I guess. It's supposed to get oil from the oil control valve. When I replaced mine, it made a god-awful noise till it finally filled back up with oil. Might check the harmonic balancer too. They go bad as well.
