ur cat is probably dieing on you. most (if not all) cars will give off that smell when the cats are on their way out

yeah i was told the cat before just didnt know. Do you think i could take the cat off and put a cherry bomb muffler there to help with the back firing. Just until i get a high flow cat. Also i have no emmisions testing in ohio.

Why not just spend a bit more and get the magnaflow hi flow cat right now. I believe they're around $80. But that's just what I've heard.

sure, but some mufflers will sound like ass even on a cherrybomb testpipe. if you have something that isnt loud, you can probably get away with it (my magnaflow sounds wayy louder with a resonated tp)

The clogged cat is probably causing the backfiring anyhow. Replacing it with anything will help that. Testpipe/resonator/cherrybomb/cat.

order a CATCO universal hi-flow cat and have an exhaust shop weld it in place of the old one. they're pretty cheap ~$60 at summit racing.
