Water Pump Pulley Noise

I am having some clicking noise coming from my water pump pulley or the tensioner? I am 100% sure it is coming from there and not a rod bearing issue The car has been sitting for about 4 months now, and had no sound when it went into storage. I was wondering if anyone could help me figure out what it causing this, is it the bearing in the pulley or is the pump going? I did upgrade to the Evolve Supercharger and maybe need to replace the pulley?

Sounds like shaft play. Mine does the same thing, I'm kind of hoping the issue will force itself on the dealer before my CPO warranty runs out in a year.

odd the noise went away, I asked Evolve to send me a new pulley and will install it.

This sounds like the clicking I've been hearing from mine. It also went away, and then came back. You are sure it's from the water pump?

Had this happen to me when an aftermarket crank pulley was loose and rattling. Even if the bolts are torqued properly, the pulley will rattle if the bolts are too long for that particular pulley.
