The timing chain on GM ecotec engines has always been loud, even this newer 1.4T version. Think this one is loud you should hear the old 2.2 "eco-tick" when the oil was cold, sounded like a diesel engine.

A timing chain will always make more noise than a belt, but I prefer the noise to having expensive maintenance & possible failure of a belt.
My 2.2 with 70,000 miles is pretty quiet, don't recall hearing a ticking but of course now I will!

Kirk: "How about a bottle of Scotch?"
Scotty: "Ay, Captain, now she will go just fine"

Nothing a few more dilithium crystals can't fix
