1. My guess is that the belt is slipping on the alt pulley. Either because of an old belt, or because there is something wrong with the altenator. Bad bearing, or maybe it's just worn out otherwise. I'd say check to make sure the belt is tight, I had a belt stretch about 3 inches once. It got so big it would just fall off the idler pulley. So check that. Otherwise my guess is it's time for a new Alt.

2. Those side pipes sound excellent. What kind of mufflers are you running?

Yeah, that's definately gotta be because of a slipping belt or faulty alt. I would change the belt first because it looks like it's slipping. Could you take a picture of your tensior pulley just to be sure, your spring inside it could be bad also. It's not likely, but I just want to be sure. Nice vid btw.
