Why does my Peugeot 405 seem faster, as well as more noisy?

I have an N-reg Peugeot 405 TD and for the past week the car has got a lot quicker, but this has come with a noise during boost. What would you say it was?

Maybe the air filter has disintegrated, so it's breathing better but more noisily.

Supple ride and composed handling, good looking, estates are practical load-haulers. Very few rust traps in the bodywork, so, though light, they last well.
