Weird sound coming from engine bay - sounds like tensioner pulley out

I recently started hearing this sound coming from my engine bay that sounds like a tensioner pulley or idler pulley going out. I replaced the idler pulley and that didn't get rid of it. I am about to change the tensioner pulley, but a friend of mine that has a truck just like mine said his started doing the same thing a while back and he had replaced everything and still didn't solve the problem. I posted on a site and a guy had mentioned that the problem was his exhaust manifold bolts and loosened up and that tightening them up would fix the problem, which it did.

I was just wandering if anyone here had heard about this before. And, how hard is it to tighten the bolts (hard to get to or not).

2000 F250 Super Duty, 7.3, 6sp Trans, lifted, custom headache rack and front bumper/grill guard.
