My friends say when they are behind me and i floor my car(from around 50mph) a puff cloud of black smoke comes out of my exhaust. Also i've haerd it smells(literally) to be in a car behind mines. I only have headers, with the stock cat., and resonator, with a N1 exaust
I'll add that my car has been eating oil lately
Any ideas t.i.?

I have the same issue... I only get black smoke when I gun my car and shift fast at high RPMS.
Ive grown to live with my oil burning problem unfortunately...

Plus side, I love Jiffy Lube top off for free... I get about 4 quarts refill in between oil changes lol.

Wait, so does this mean unless I fix my valve stem seals I will continue having to fill up my oil everytime it gets low? And does it even mean thats the problem to my oil burning?

^my car had an oil consumption problem and about the same issue...anytime i hit about 6k just cloud of smoke. When i removed the valve it was no longer functioning and replacing it resolved my issue. (this was the first and last thing i tried) now im making it to my 3500 mile oil change with most of my oil. They are really cheap too but a pain to change.

give it a shot

What do your friends smell behind you? If its oil burning you will smell it. It could be your cat going bad.
