markgws6 never mind what I said, I just realized I have an analog temp guage, duh! lol I was thinking the quad console gauges I don't have...

markgws6 That'd be good if I had an analog temp gauge. lol. It seems a bit steep sometimes, but I've attrib. it to the new engine breaking in and will check it some time later down the road. Thanks for all of your help! The smell went away already too! :-) 1500+ miles now, it's a whole different ballgame now that I can open her up past 4K.

DopeTech420 Oh and the temp fluctuation is definitely from stop and go traffic, just watch the analog gauge as long as it doesn't go past around 3/4 to "H" then you're good to go.

DopeTech420 I got 1800 km ( canadian eh on my 2011 and I noticed a smell at first but it was gone by 1000 km, your car standard? Ever consider it may be clutch stink?

54inches Hey by the way, I found your answer, if you wait a little bit, the smell will go away.

I think it may be from the tooling oils on your exhaust pipes.

DrJohn I betting on the exhaust.

I had to go thru it twice .... once off the showroom floor (in fact it was still on the truck when I first saw it ... my title says 7 miles in the odometer field ) ... once when I had the Magnaflow CAT back installed.

It all goes away.

One other note about something mentioned above ... in my '88 Camaro one time I (apparently) drove over a foam plastic coffe cup some butthead threw out his window on the freeway and it stuck to my CATs and stunk up the place for about 2 days until I looked under the car to see if there was anything and there was. Waited til it cooled, scraped off what I could and wire brushed the residue off.

Devryn The dealer is right. Its oils and plastics that haven't burned off. It can last awhile, especially if you don't like to drive your car hard. You could try degreasing your engine bay. Sometimes that helps it burn off faster.

markgws6 I still smell the smell - a certain song comes to mind. lol 1100 miles now. Yeah, I don't drive it much. Took it back to the dealer and they said it's normal and can last till around 2-3000 miles.
