Airaid CAI

Anyone notice a burning smell when they really work the throttle after installing the Airaid CAI?

I had a smell that I would describe as somewhat sweet bing not coolant sweet. Took it to the dealership, and they said it was something in the cats and normal. I haven't really smelled it since though.
