I know that new cars cat. converters make funny smell burning in, however my car now has 5K+ miles on it and I still get that smell when I get on it. Some of me thinks it could even be the tranny because it happens when it downshifts 2 gears. Anyone else experience this?

Haven't experienced that smell.

Question: What does 97MPower's mom's crotch smell like???

Answer: "Depends"

My cat converter actually got clogged a couple weeks ago- only had around 2000 miles. Those goofy bastards at my dealer installed new ones. I notice the smell also, from time to time.
Also when I pass by the Meadowlands.

I hear that. The Meadowlands smells pretty f*ckin' rank...

Upon releasing the accelerator above around 2500 rpm, the car kept making a metallic noise. The car also didn't speed up as well. I brought it in and a dude said that the converter started clogging up. He had no clue why.
