    There is something burning in my exhaust

    probably styrofoam or tape. I don’t want to get cancer breathing this horrible smelling… whatever it is in, so I am going to take the catback off tomorrow and clean it.

    What do you think I should use? I was thinking of using carb cleaner.

    well that dont make since that something is burning in your exaust i thougth magnaflow was a straight through design unless your ride is running lean and adding more heat to the exuast increasing the rist of catching the packing material on fire or close enough to make it stink. I would check to see if something didnt get caught up around your exaust like trash or something first though.

    Personally I'd just let it burn off, whatever it is. You're not gonna get cancer or anything from that. If it continues for weeks or something then it might be worth looking into.

    I've always thought them to be a little on the small side.

    Like was said above. If the exhaust is new it could just be burning off the newness. I would also just get under there and feel up on top of the pipes and muffler to make sure something didn't get under the car and on top of it.
