She's a little fat...

Seriously, my PSD doesn't really smoke except for like a split second when you first start it, but I do notice that if I leave it running I can really smell the exhaust. For example, if I drive to a gas station and leave it running, I'll smell the exhaust pretty good whin I come out. Is that normal on these?

Also, the previous owner put in a K&N replacement air filter in the stock box. It appears to need a cleaning... what's the best way to clean one of these?
