97 PSD lagging and humming grinding noise

I have a 1997 PSD all stock with 194,XXX. E40D no idea if it has ever been rebuilt or not.
since the cold has set in the truck has been running a bit rough. In all gears the truck will consistently make a humming/grinding noise and slow the truck down. it is only at a certain rpm in each gear. i can even hear it do it when idling. after the truck is warm it will still do it unless i shut it of and let it sit for maybe ten minutes and then drive again, and even then it still does it. i have to get on it for it to go away and it makes her real hard to drive. Any ideas? i will try to make a video of it tomorrow morning when i go to work, as it is sort of hard to explain. I am thinking it is the trans because it does shift a bit hard, but maybe the turbo. would EBVP have anything to do with it
??

No it does not, only around 1100 to 1500 rpm in any gear besides neutral. I am going to changes the trans filter and fluid and see if that helps at all. The fluid looks good and light red though...

Okay, just wanted to establish that it's not something further down in the driveline (diff, brakes, etc). Hmm, torque converter maybe?

Recently, i removed the exhaust from the cat back and the sound is amplified by 10 fold. I am leaning towards a torque converter, but i am unsure as to why the noise would get WAY louder? ANY suggestions would be awesome. Also i can post another video when i get home without the exhaust on if needed...
