That almost sounds like an exhaust leak. Warm it up and torque down the exhaust manifold bolts starting the in the center and working outwards. I don't have the torque specs, but a Haynes manual should be able to give you that info.

Probably there could be a problem with the rings or even the pistons. Does it guzzle up too much gas?
