Any reason my car would smell funny after flashing the fswerks tune?. Sweet smell Exhaust compared to pre-tune normal unburnt fuel smell

you are probably running richer, possibly too rich (unburnt fuel would make it smell funny)

Check if you housing is leaking from that damn o ring. very common problem on those. Both my svtf have leaked.

And it can hit the exhaust .

Or your running rich. Could be either.

Day 7 in a row at work.

Car will be fixed tonight. Wheel bearing was completely siezed. Buying a new hub tonight and pressing everything back together, then back to cheap driving to work. No more 14mpg trips. Lol

Have no o-ring. I upgraded the housing.

Now that I think about it, it smelled like your car if your who I think you are, at the meet in hell 2 years ago. Cause I asked if you were running rich haha.

Scratch everything I said. Car has no coolant in it. Why if I put a zetech housing on, with only an o-ring for the temp sensor. New t-stat. New hose going to the heater core that goes over the trans. Why would it leak like this still? Is the zetech one maybe a different diameter than the Svt where it goes to the block?
