Almost every time I get into my car and start her up I notice that, with the windows closed and air not A/C on, I smell exhauset. I have the SSR header and this never happned before I got it. How can I tell, where should I look, and what do i do for an exhaust leek?:xyxnervou

ssr header will cause you to smell the gas fumes. it is much more noticable if your idling in place, or at first start up when cold.

yea, i also get it with my DCRH.

if you want to be sure you dont have a leak, have some one rev your engine and look under your car. check for any fumes or anywhere that it may sound extra loud (near any welds)

Yeah you will also be able to see black all around where it is leaking. A friend of mine installed elmahones SSR header and he called and complained about the same thing. We checked it and no leaks....welcome to a race header.
