It might have a lose bolt or maybe one of the gaskets could be bad. check them I had a Suzuki Samurai and it did almost the same so I change the gaskets and got quiet...

There may be a crack in the exhaust manifold or a bad gasket as mentioned above. Sometimes as the exhaust warms up the metal expands and seals the leak. Take a close look at the exhaust manifold and the rest of the exhaust system.
