    Thread: smell exhaust fumes when stop - new exhaust?

    1. 04-05-2010 06:16 PM #1
      quick question - i smell exhaust fumes when i have the windows down. I am 99.99% sure it is coming from the back of the exhaust and not a leak. I am running 3" dp - no cat - 2.5" cat back fabbed at local shop so no muffler - if i purchase an actual catback exhaust will it help eliminate the fumes having the muffler? if not what other ideas do you know could help eliminate that odor while driving in the city

      Maybe the combination of not having a cat and the oil that is on exhaust piping?
