Default '06 tc-making low growl noise

2006 Scion tc - 5 speed manual - around 85K miles - Very prominent low growl (only way to really describe this noise is by a low dog growl or a card in a bicycle wheel rolling at high speed) when in any gear and accelerating. When I let off the gas i cant really hear it but when accelerating its horrible, especially when driving slow in low gear (2nd or 3rd). I've looked at other forums for this and no one elses description seems to really match. could this be a valve? i dont think its the tranny but not a mechanic. not having tranny issues either. It's really starting to worry me and seems to be getting louder and possibly worse? Help!
