    Check your timing and give it some new plugs. That sounds like it's pinging. Also use 92 octane and see if that helps.
    It could also have a vacuum leek causing it to run lean.

    Have you checked the items in the above reply?
    If so it can be an exhaust leek. OR
    The valves need adjusting or replacing the hydraulic lash adjuster. OR the oil is low and you are going to blow it up.
    Please answer the first question. With out information no one can help you.
