    Is that just a catback?

    Look for fuel leaks (could be under the manifold though)

    Put the stock air box back in unless you are tuned for that intake - it may be making you run rich (or lean which is far worse but doesn't smell like gas).

    This was one of my first posts as well. Mine turned outto be the little rubber fuel lines under the intake. Quite a job to repair without taking the intake off but I got it done. No more smell after two years just about.
    when my friends come up, i hear, "you sold the camarrrroooh.....HOLY BLEEP A WRX!"
    Ya has that effect on me too.

    If all else fails from everyone else's thoughts, there was a recall on 2002-2006 WRX's for the vacuum tubes that was causing gas fumes to go into the cabin. I've had two separate WRX's that I had the recall done on. I would check and see if it was complied with on your car.

    Yeah, when I clicked in here I was shocked that it wasn't a bugeye in the cold. We have a sticky on that and I have had it done myself.

    OP - you might want to google that for pics to see where it was happening - might be similar although your year isn't known for it. IIRC it was a fuel line that was contracting in the cold.
