Default burning smell on new muffler

hey, installed my 14" mufflex a few days ago ( see video on mufflex 14 install thread) anyway , I get a kinda burning smell now, I was wondering if it was the packing in the process of blowing out or its just getting realy hot, anyone now or have the same experiance.

It will go away after a while. they sometimes coat the muffler with a light skin coat of oil to prevent rusting and moisture while in the box on a shelf, like rotors but not as much. After a few days of runnin it down the road gettin it hot it will be fine!
