I went to pass somebody today who was going 25 in a 55.. well anyway, I push the gas pedal down to the floor to get some of that addicting boost (after not flooring it for about a month!) and I hear the absolutely wonderful sound of the supercharger kicking in. there'* just one catch though.. I was getting hardly any acceleration! Usually I can be up to around 60-70 MPH by the time I get around a car, today it was around 40. It'* like when you floor it and expect it to downshift into first, but it'll only go to the absolute bottom of second gear. THAT is what it felt like, but worse. I know it was in first too because the RPM'* were 4,500+. After I finally got around the car I could smell an extremely aweful smell. not the common "stomping on the gas smell" that you'd usually get, but a really bad, nose-burning sulfur type smell. I tested it out a bit on a few full-throttle runs to see if it was just that one time, and it had a bit more power, but still not like it usually does. After running it hard like this I pulled into my driveway and got out and yep, that horibble sulfur type smell was coming from the exhaust. It smells so bad that it burns your nose, and you can still smell it for a few minutes after just breathing it for a second. I've not had this problem before. My 02 sensor is new and spark plugs are only about 15,000 miles old. any ideas?
I also have a really bad surging problem when accelerating onto the highway. I think that is more transmission based though. As in a failing torque converter.
