Would that be a whinny noise (horses whinny)... Whinny'ing horse - YouTube
Or a whiny noise (high pitched)
Good one! Someone has some "real horsepower" under the hood!
Seriously, maybe the belts or maybe a loose belt pulley causing the noise. An even worst case could be the wheel bearings going bad. Take it to a shop and have a mechanic check it out.
If it is a whining noise, then it's coming from a belt, a bearing or some other rotating part. The OP didn't say whether it was audible when the vehicle is stationary or only when moving.
I will assume it's audible when stationary.....
The first step is to use an automotive stethoscope (under $10 at any parts store) and go over the motor item by item, being careful (of course) not to get tangled in anything.
One thing which jumps out at me is that he specified they replaced the timing chain tensioners, but he hasn't listed any of the belts or belt tensioners. Those would be among the first candidates I'd look at.
It also occurs to me that removing belts and driving it briefly would tell him whether it's something that's belt-driven or not.
