    IMO it smells like mineral spirits. Or a burned paint thinner.

    No exhaust leaks, the smell is coming out of the tail pipe. No smoke.

    Smell is new, never experienced with this car before.

    Not sure if this is related, but the exhaust is very very moist. If I put my hand next to it it will get almost wet after a couple minutes. Maybe it has done that since mods, but I never tried so idk.

    Could I be burning coolant in the cylinder due to bad HG? Could this be slight oil burning? Maybe I've burned something? What do you think?

    Sounds like you may have some unburnt fuel making it to the tailpipe, mixed with condensation maybe.

    What are the fuel trims like through your scanner?
