      I could do $500 to $1000, but don't want to drop 1k if I don't need that much of a setup. I use this car for daily driving May do 1 or 2 autocrosses this year until I can get a 2nd car with RWD.

      I usually associate car fish smell with antifreeze. Small coolant leak? Cracked heater core?
