Exhaust smell coming from vents

2011 premium GT with Magnaflow O/R X pipe and competion catback exhaust setup which has been on for a while. This just started happening recently. I have been getting an exhaust or gas smell when driving around with the A/C on. It is so bad that I have to turn the vents away from my face. I can start to smell it a few minutes after I start the car and it doesn't go away. It seems to be worse when I am at a stop. The first thing I thought of is maybe an exhaust leak but I haven't had the time to really check. Has anyone else had this problem or does anyone have any suggestions on what it could be and what I can do to fix it?

Thanks

Something like that happened to my old bosses 2010 f150. It was something with the emissions system maybe egr but I can't remember exactly

If you have another vehicle, use it. Park that one til you figure out what it is.

I would agree, definitely not good to be breathing in!

Thanks y'all. I'll be getting under the car this weekend to change the oil so I'll inspect everything else.

Haven't gotten to take look yet. My old jack wouldn't work so I need to buy a new one first. On the bright side, it doesn't seem to be as bad this week as it was the last few weeks.

You sure it's not the exhaust smell coming back into the car? Does it only happen when stopped?
