    i just recently put on a greddy turbo kit on an si motor. It was working like a charm until 10 mintes into the test drive the smell hit me. Crazy exhaust fumes inside of the car. i figure i have an exhaust leak. Does anybody know how i can test to see where the leak is coming from?
    thanks
    p.s. im a noob

    start your car,crawl underneath and breethe deep.
    j/k id start with it on, checking around the manifold and all the flanges, next id check underneath and feel around for exhaust. some soapy water might help too.

    soapy water = steam on hot exhaust lol and if your smelling it inside the car chances are its not a small leak where you will need to you water to find it ... try taking it to an exhasut shop and having them fix it for around 50$ if you exhaust isnt in too bad shape and they can repair it
