Sorry for such a delay. The noise is starting to get worse I would say.
I really don't think it is the heat shield. It is so much more heavy sounding than a small heat shield. My best guess was the engine torque mount. I have a VF mount, checked It, and it happend the rubber bushings were shot, so I thought that was definitely it. Ordered a new vVF mount and it is still there. And actually I believe it made the noise last longer and I hear it every time the car is cold.
It sounds like it is coming from right below the shifter, but a little more towards the engine. When the car is cold I need to get going and then when the car hits about 3k the noise will appear. Then it fades away as the rpms fall. After 2k it is gone. I can be stopped and rev the engine to make the noise appear as well. Then once the car is warmed it is gone.
Could it be the T-stat?
Thanks for all the help

|ysrpilot||Can't tell from the video, but I will agree with the others about the heatshield problems. I was hearing all kinds of terrible squeaking/vibration noises coming from my car that made me a little worried. Upon investigation, the cat and header heatshields were both cracked around the bolts and vibrating. I took off the bottom cat heatshield and put washers behind the bolts on the top cat and a couple spots on the header headshields to snug everything up. Noises are now gone.|

Definitely very hard to tell on your video.
Small Exhaust leak maybe ...
If it was your heat shield, you would here it at idle as well. So, I don't think that's it.

|02slvrfocus||id check your flex pipe and heat shields start obvious first and work on to bigger|

SVTF has a few cheap, thin heat shields down the exhaust in several places. As my SVTF aged, these shields came loose and would vibrate at random time under random conditions, each making a different noise: from hums to outright duck call like noise. Could be that.
Also as my motor mounts went to pasture, I got more buzzes and creaks that would pop up at weird times.

The thing is, it is very random. I know it only happens when the car is cold, but it is not like I can make it happen.
I had to whip out my phone to even grab that video!
