Default How many of you have daily drivers with no cats?

I just installed an O/R X-pipe and I'm beginning to have some second thoughts. It sounds good and all, but the fumes it's giving off seems a bit overwhelming. I'm just curious to see how many people tolerate this everyday and whether it's just me being a baby.

It seems unusually powerful, seems like it's on par with full on drag cars. Could it be that my tune is running rich?

I daily drove my car for three years with o/r pipe. Didn't really bother me...but I do have a pretty quiet catback...and it was pretty annoying when I had the borla stingers on there before haha.

i haven't driven my car daily for almost a year, but drove it four years before that. anyways. i didn't smell a thing and its a convertible. the only way i smelt (?) anything was standing directly behind my car for a min or to. on the other hand my buddy has a 94 and i can't bare to be in his car. really rich

04 w/no cats driven daily. I don't notice a smell inside the car, and it is a convertible. Sometimes I will notice the fumes if I walk behind it when it first fires up.
