Ah thank you for that. After doing an oil change, it looks like oil was leaking from around the oil filter and dripping down onto the pipe causing that oil burning smell, thank previous owner.

Hopefully after driving it later tonight the smell has gone away. Today has been a productive day: car wash, RallyArmor UR install, plate holder installed, 3000k high beams, 4100k low beams, 3000k fogs, DRL delete, air filter change, oill change. Boy this car is easy to work on compared to my Audi.
