Could be the bolts that hold the torque convertor to the flex plate are loose, this is/was a common problem, I had the same thing, 10 mins on the ramps fixed it..
Cheers

I'd say it was the exhaust hitting the floor pan or something under there maybe have a look underneath while its making the niose or jack it up, get some gloves on and grab the pipe(maybe do it when the pipes cold) and see if you can mimic the sound by moving the pipe left/right up/down.
