Interior Engine Noise

Anyone have an interior engine noise? My car sounds like a diesel truck on the interior of the car. It isnt as loud as a diesel but that is what it sounds like. The hotter the car gets the louder the noise is. And it is getting worse with mileage. The noise sound like it is coming from the passenger footwell.

I need to take it back to the dealer but they can never diagnose anything. Been there once with this noise all ready and got the big shrug of the shoulders from them. My last two problems I had to show them what was wrong.
Could it be piston slap?

Could it be your fuel ? Some cause detonation.

You should here my valve train with the REV double springs, that's loud, but I'm good to 7200 rpm

This is the first I've heard of anyone with this problem so you aren't going to find any TSBs or help from the dealer. You probably are going to have to do some exploring on your own. If it is that bothersome you may need to spend some time under the dash and having someone else drive while you search for the noise.
