Mine isn't too bad. I think the CAT is just going bad, or the O2.

If your smelling rotten egg smell I am guessing you have a coolant leak I had an intake leak and it was leaking coolant and it was burning it and pukeing it out the back and it smelled like eggs.. I would look into a new intake manifold gasket
