Ticking sound OLD vs. NEW Threads

Im not going to waste my time trying to describe it, here is a clip of the sound:

so i read a lot of the threads and here is my question:

Pre 2010 Mr. 5 and others claimed this was a wastegate rattle issue that could be fixed by tightening an actuator but it was caused by a failing wastegate.

Post 2010 - everyone says this is normal and relax.

I dont know what changed or why but my car never used to do this, it also has new factory replaced turbos so wastegate doesnt seem likely as they are new.

Thoughts comments?
