You gotta get the CEL code. If its a lean code you could damage the engine.

Hope the smell is from the header coating burning off. If it doesn't go away very soon you have a leak or are to close to something and is melting something. Do some checking.

Its not the headers that are giving a smell it smells a tiny bit like carbon monoxide just coming from the exhaust if that makes sense

You can go awhile without a tune. I went several weeks before I could get into my tuner. Dont worry if the CEL comes on, its just the rear 02's lighting off. Even with high flow cats you will get that little extra stink, its normal. You'll be fine, just dont drive her too hard till you get the tune.

How is that possible when carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless, and tasteless gas?

Got to any major auto parts store and they can pull the codes for you. Usually for free.
