    sounds like you were in my truck! I'd have to say definetly exhaust, mine is actually where the rear passanger puts his/her feet, on the passagner side. My header collectors were flared incorrectly, which causes a build up right at that point. it can melt soles of shoes! Not a good thing when you have a shoe fettish.

    Is your carb running rich? I had a car that had problems with carb flooding, when car was flooding cat and pipes would turn red from extra heat. Car almost cought on fire once(carpet was burning!).New carb kit fixed problem

    HAHA my mufflers are so close to where you put your feet in the rear seat, that the heat melted the sole of the shoe of my ex-girlfriends little sister's shoe!!!!! - Doug

    I do not seem to be missing anything as far at pipes converters or heat sheilding. But I am running rich, I can't smell it but I noticed black smoke today. That raises another question how do I know when I have the mixture right?
