    Wierd smell

    can yal please help i get this weird smell only when i mash on the throttle, during normal driving and shifting no smell, car is an m6 with 45k miles. plugs n wires r good, its not antifreeze i know what that smells like,plus the level is fine no leaks noticed.it only happpens when i mash on the throttle i dont even go that high maybe about 4700 4800. theres no smoke,but it comes through the vents, air is off, i took off the belt. i dont think its the clutch gears still goin fine, no problems shifting. i dont know what it is and its bothering the hell out of me. also there is no weird abnormal noises.

    If it only does it at High Rpm i would lean towards clutch slipping. Kinda a sweet burnt smell.

    there's a lot of things it could be... could be a plug wire resting on the header, a clutch slipping, etc ect... what kind of smell is it???

    its not gas, its not a raw smell, and its not as sweet like antifreeze, and yes its only at high rpms. its not a harsh smell though.

    so its probaly in the beggining stage of slippage, what do yal think of monster clutches, the car is not gonna stay stock long, heads cam, maybe a procharger depending on funds,,keep in mind this is gonna be a mostly street car, with very little track time seen, a 9 inch is also in the near future
