The alternator might be struggling Ė either itís broken or because the battery needs to be replaced.
Also rev specific noice might be caused by the aircon. compressor (broken or low fluid level in the aircon. system) or even a broken power steering pump or a water pump.
If the noise also changes when you turn the steering wheel itís most likely caused by the power steering pump.
Thanks, it's not associated with steering. Really hope it's not alternator, decided not to replace when I had the engine out a few months back.

Sorry, Mate. I forgot to mention that rev. related noise can also be cause by e.g. the auxillary belt idler or even a clutch thrust bearing.

Cheers. Clutch is only 1500 miles old so hopefully not that!
