Have you crawled under the vehicle and personally inspected your exhaust line from manifold to tail pipe? The roaring sound usually occur when there is a hole in the exhaust line. I had it happen to my forester before. A hole half the size of a dime made my subaru sound like my old 74 chevy pickup.

- Does it happen when standing if you raise the RPMs up to 2-3,000? If yes, listen closely to the alternator.
- Is it related to road speed? If so, then you should put it on a chassis lift, wheels free, then cause it to happen by putting it in gear and raising RPMs to road speed.
I suspect it isn't the acceleration that causes the pitch to change but rather engine RPMs.
You could check this while on the road by starting in a lower gear and noting when the whine is very noticeable, then slip into the next higher gear to see if the whine changes or remains the same. If it remains, it probably isn't related to the engine but to some rotating part(s) outside it (for example, wheel bearings.) If it changes, then the noise is coming from some engine component and alternators can do this when the amperage load is high; it's also a part that turns at a fairly high speed and will 'whine' rather than 'growl.'

If it's doesn't sound like it's your engine which i am thinking not. Check to see if there any heat shield that may have come lose, like the heat shield to the spark plug wire or heat sheild along the down pipe.
Good luck and hope this was the rattling your taking about as it heats up it expands and tighten's up.
