Whenever I accelerate there is a "zinging" noise that emanates from under the hood. There is no noticeable vibrations that I can feel from it. I think it may be that the exhaust manifold heat shield is loose, or something of that sort.

If the noise is external of engine, it can be anything that is loose such as heat shields. You would need to locate the source to be able to rectify it.
