Is this normal?

Hi. I purchased my 14 GT a couple of weeks ago but have been driving with the wife in the car so I haven't been able to punch it.
So this morning I decided to punch it out of first (screw the break in period) and it was awesome. But afterwards the cabin smelt like rotten eggs. Is this something that's normal during the first few hundred miles?
Sorry if it's a stupid question. Any advice would be great! Thanks.

You crapped your pants from the acceleration didn't you? Yeah, that's normal for all 5.0 owners.

That's funny.

As long as it's normal then I'm good. Thanks for the help!

The first time I punched it from 0-60 with a friend in the car, he literally lifted out of the seat.

But seriously your fine mine smells like it too sometimes just the combination of the burnt oil and gas. What octane do you use?

I use the premium which is 93 I believe. I guess I could just use it to cover up any body odor I've been emitting

That smell is from your catalytic converters. It will go away after you punch it a few more times.
