    So hard to guess at a sound with out being able to drive the vehicle first hand and experience the problem. A vibration like you describe is likely to be the exhaust rubbing due to a filed exhaust rubber hanger or engine mount that is allowing the engine to flex "too much". Vibrations on acceleration are often caused by damaged or cracked exhaust heat shields.
