Is it exhaust? My friends just had to replace a cracked Y-pipe that was leaking exhaust smell into the cab.

Not sure it smells like it could be.. Seems like I smell it less when I'm accelerating.. How much did it cost your friend? Is it something an aftermarket exhaust system would fix?

Not sure on the price of that fix alone, he spent $4k on injectors, oil cooler, full delete, y-pipes and some other stuff for his '05. It is not anything that is fixed with aftermarket exhaust.

I plan on doing mine when ever i have time. Most exhaust shops i doubt would or could sence you have to pull the turbo off to do it.

Dont start buying stuff just yet. Get under there and look for soot. See where your issue is before you buy anything. It could be something just loose.

Check the firewall for soot if it smells like exhaust. If it smells like raw fuel check your ficm voltage
