grinding at 5000 rpm

My alfa 156 is a 52 plate 1.8 T.spark.

for the past couple of weeks its been making a grinding noise at 5000 rpm. Going up the revs and back down. it does not affect the pull of the car in anyway at all.

just wondering if anyone had any ideas.

I would hazard a guess that it is the cam variator

Re: grinding at 5000 rpm

Doesn't it make a diesel-like noise for a few seconds on start-up as well? I've got a feeling its the cam variator as well but this is an unusual symptom..
