Well, new catback came in Sat., so Sun morning I was under my car going to work. Installed new exhaust with minimal problems. The only problem I have is that now I'm getting a horrible spell from the exhaust that people can sufficate on. I gotta drive with the a/c on otherwise the spell with come in the car. The only thing I did was spray wd40 on the bolts on the catback. When I got the old exhaust off I sprayed wd40 around the factory pipe that the new one was going to bolt upto, so that the gasket would seal completely, well some wd40 went into the pipe.

Is this what I'm spelling? Burnt wd40. Does anyone know if it'll pass after a couple days?

Any advice would be a great help. Thanks

It's normal. The smell is coming from the new resonator and muffler. It will go away after a few days of driving..or after a lllooonnnggg road trip.
