    Hey all, Elmo the Destroyer is acting up, but I think it could be my fault. I sawed the 90 degree elbow off of the intake and removed the charcoal air filter, but left the normal filter. At normal operation parameters, everything works fine, but there's a weird smell when I floor it. Could this be because of the missing charcoal filter, maybe I'm burning dirty air? My other thought is perhaps I need to change my fluids, because I often shift through the gears manually and this might be wearing out the transmission. Please advise.
