I don't smell it at all. When i get out of the car, then i smell it. I love the smell. Smells like performance and tells the world 'I beat the system'

it smells pretty bad when you first start it up. chalky to be exact. NO fun if you stand in it fr a second, the smell adheres to your clothes like glue and doen't go away. I have a vert and never smell it at a light. I might be use to it though.

I have convertors on both my Mustang and my 87 Ram.

Not only for the smell but also doing my part for the world we live in. Not to mention fines suck.

I'm just curious to see how many people tolerate this everyday and whether it's just me being a baby.

I did for a year when I had my 04 mach1. It was my DD. When I do lt's on my cobra I'm going to go with a catted midpipe. The smell isint to bad when driving, The thing that I hate is coming home every day with my clothes smelling like gas fumes. Especially when I have to go to school or somewhere where i have to get dressed up nice. Ainte nothing like showing up to a nice dinner with your g/f or family and smell like gas fumes lol.

Yea, catted midpipes are a huge waste of money. No one ever gets caught and your just paying a whole lotta money for no HP. Might as well stay stock if you plan on going catted. Call me crazy, but i think mustangs sound better stock than they do with a catted mid pipe. They lose the bass deepness they did when it was just the muffler

it shouldn't be too bad, especially if the car is tuned correctly and everything, i have had o/r x pipes on every mustang i have owned and it usually smells bad for the first like week and then it goes away, or maybe i'm just used to it lol
