Good afternoon everyone. I have a 2018 Accord LX with Ktuner V1.2, PRL stage one intake, cone air filter, and I have had the catalytic converter gutted, it's gone. My concern is this: each time I complete a decently long drive, when I open my door, I smell oil. I can't distinguish if it is a burnt oil smell, or just a used oil smell. I cannot locate and leaks or drips, under the car or under the hood anywhere. My dipstick shows a normal oil level, and the oil is decent enough in color. Has anybody else had this issue? Any info or explanations would be wildly appreciated. Thanks in advanced!

Is your exhaust really clean? Typically it's full of black soot, but since you gutted your cat, there is nothing there to burn off excess vapors. It's not a huge amount as you already noticed. But still perceivable. Like if I left a tissue used to wipe the dipstick in your car, you would probably smell it when you got in. Not a whole lot of oil, but noticeable. That would be my guess since you do not see a leak anywhere or notice any drips on any parts.
