Lifter tick? Car has been sitting for a 9-10 months

Hey guys,
just wondering if anyone can recognize this sound....

The car has been sitting for around 9-10 months. It did not sound like this before. Any ideas? I used some googlefu and amateur audio diagnostics via youtube and have hypothesized that it is lifter tick, caused by a leakdown of oil in the lifters. Should I be worried? Does anyone know how to remedy this situation? I really dont want to rebuild the engine... it only has 3 engine hours after a swap made by midwest eurosport a few years ago.

Moral of the story: if you own a porsche just drive the damn thing.
