totally normal... including the nasty burnt smell. Depending on how much you drive the car, it'll stick around for a little while during the break-in period of the new mufflers.

The fiberglass packing/dampening material in the mufflers needs to cooked as well as exhuaust with resonators...The smoke and the smell will eventually subside.

Funny! I've not had any problems of such sort with my AE Exhaust and my AR downpipes.

Are you sure that no packing pellets got inside of your exhaust?

I just had my AR catless downpipes installed yesterday along with the AFE exhaust. I had smoke and a weird smell as well. Hopefully it goes away soon.
