So I have a 2005 sti, when I’m at idle, on both right and left sides of the engine bay, more towards the driver and passenger windows, I get this weird “burning, but not really smell” I’m not sure if this is because I’m catless or if there is a serious problem like an evap issue.. someone wanna help me out?

Have you inspected the engine bay for any kind of oil leak or build up? 2005 sti, probably 100K on it, when was the last time you looked at the valve cove gaskets?
