Well when an engine is first ran it has alot of oil to burn which can lead to a pretty strong and foul oder or perfume to some but if you are runnig headers make sure the collector gasket is not leakin because fumes will come right up through the shifter housing into the cab of your ride. Look to see if any gas fumes are coming from around the shifter i have had a similar problem many times.
