I've done some searches but didn't get any good hits. Only at WOT when i let off i get a buring smell from the vents. Anyone know what it is? IT lasts a couple mins and only comes after a lil WOT run, so anyone got a clue?

Not sure but is there alot of "tire smoke" behind the car when you do this??? It may just be filtering in through the vents.....:lol: J/K... I'm sure someone will be along soon to help, I have never had this problem...

I have the same smell when I get out of the car after a hard run. Have had it since I bought it. But my smell doesn`t come thru the vents. When you run hard - is the a/c on and on recyle or is it vented from outside air. If the a/c is on and using fresh air , it could be the cats or maybe engine heat.

I think there was a thread awhile back on this same problem?????

What you are probably smelling is the engine "venting" a bit through the PCV overflow vent..........bit of an "oily" smell?????
