2010 GT

I wonder why my stang smells harsh after I put it at higher RPM's. I'll put it down the track at about 130 shifting around 5k rpms through each gear. I have tried it in sport more and regular. If any1 has any ideas or any suggestions send it. Thanks and I'm sure it's not the tires. It smells more like metal or bad oil, but using full synthetic that doesn't even have 500 miles on it's usage. I don't over use my clutch or burn it. I don't even use it half the time, I'm able to pop out of the gear I'm in.

Mine smells the exact same way when I push it, it seems to be less harsh now with some miles on it (7k) no clue what it is but it's probably normal since it happens on multiple new stangs

Re: 2010 GT

cats could be what it is if they are getting to hot, are you doing quarter mile or autox, cuz 130mph is not stock if your in the quarter lol so you would have to have some major mods to get that MPH.

Thanks for the suggestions, and no, no quarter mile, we have a 1/2 mile private track. Nothing established, just a little home street. And ok my first idea was to change out to headers, but I'm wondering which kind and to either go with shorty or full length? And by the way my car is only at 10k miles. So thanks again for the feedback.
