Blocking Exhaust Smell in cabin..anyone succeed?

Checked oil leaking from valve cover area and its neighborhood but no leaking at all..... Innocent ....
When the window is open to get some fresh air in while running, smell gets even worse
Also got a strong smell in trunk.
Is there anybody who had same problem and get this fixed?

Could be the V-clamp on the down pipes. Have a shop put the car on a lift and inspect.

Hi Oceans10

Thanks for the input.

That's what I thought while I was driving this morining when I heard rattling noise from the bottom, maybe 2~3 times, passing over the speed bump.
Hope this is a real culprit and a easy fix.
I will have the car inspected today.

Thanks
