Exclamation Exhaust smell

Hi everyone. I have a 2010 ram 1500 w/ Hemi. I added the magnaflow exhaust. 18 inch muffler. I have the factory duals/ and resonators still on. I notice sometimes this sulfur smell after I've laid on it down the highway. I could be cruising at 70 and I smell the sulfur smell inside the cab even. I know that with pickups you get a wind turbulence effect in the rear. But should I be smelling it going down the highway even? Has anyone else noticed this too with their aftermarket mufflers? Thank for the input.

how long ago did you put the muffler on? I've heard of new exhausts having a funky smell for a little while after they've been installed- should just be some residue left over from manufacturing that will burn off after a little while (maybe a week or two). You might also want to check, and re-tighten if necessary, any exhaust clamps, just in case.

How many miles do you have on your truck? The catalytic convertors can smell like that on newer trucks after a hard run.

I would say that it's probably normal for a new truck...just check make sure nothing is leaking and you should be fine. I know after I bought mine in the spring, the first few times I hooked it up to pull the boat it would smell. I actually pulled over one time it was so bad but couldn't find anything leaking, just all the burnt tags on the exhaust and engine block. After the third time or so it finally went away. I will say that even with 12000 miles on it if I really get on it I will still notice a slight buring smell just for a second. Just my .02 hope it helps.

I've had my truck since July. I have just over 5,000 miles on it. Exhaust is about 3-4 months old. I guess having that big stock muffler might defuse the smell and the new muffler lets it escape being its more free flowing.
