    Suspect leak, take it in to dealer, expect no action taken.

    My '12 had the inter-cooler boot come loose.

    I'd also suspect a leak. There's a reason it sounds louder, and that's really the only possible cause. Good thing you have a warranty so it won't cost you anything to get it fixed!
