scotty i got a ticking sound similar to when a car is low on oil but it only starts when i accelerate

i have a 2008 ford escape with a v6 3.0 and its making a light ticking sound when the rpms get at or above 2000 rpms, i haven't noticed a loss in fuel economy. i've tried ruling out a few things with the help of friends, i tried in both park and neutral to rev the engine to see if i could locate the ticking at home. its got plenty of oil, i also tried some of the marvels mystery oil to see if it was a sticky lifters. in a forum i read a suggestion to try cleaning the mass airflow sensor and no change, i checked all my cv joints at a suggestion but they looked great. another suggestion i was given was to see if the sound was there while coasting in neutral and the sound wasn't there. it seems to be only when im accelerating at or above the 2000rpms its isn't present when im driving easy in town or if im keeping a steady speed in the highway, only when im accelerating. i hope you can help me figure this sound out

much appreciative of you videos and advice

I took a quick video on my way to work. It's a little faith over the cabin noise but the clicking is there in the background

make a video of the noise and post it here. I've heard just about everything a ford can do
