    You will be fine driving without a tune. A tune is not a necessity with LTs, however, you will get the most out of them with a tune. Many people on here have ran LTs without a tune for long periods of time (1-2 years) without issues.

    I am pretty sure that the smell you are smelling is normal until all of the residue burns off of them. You may want to double check though that something like an O2 wiring harness is not contacting the headers.

    LTs often make it run rich which over the long term is not good. A tune is well worth the money in short term gains (HP) and long term longevity.
