Depending on charge pressure at shut down the accusump may be able to overcome dirty/ work tensioners allowing for quieter start ups.

Most people do not know how to properly shut down an engine with an accusump to "charge" it for the next start up. Any car that has an accusump (using the electronic solenoid) needs to have the engine revved to 4,500 RPM and held there for 1-2 seconds then shut the key off immediately NEVER allowing the engine to return to idle. This ensures a significant discharge of volume and pressure from the accusump at the next start cycle.

If concerned with start up and tensioners, just pull the tensioners and clean them, or replace them. Otherwise you are applying a band aid.
