If you said it was a sulfur smell I would say that it's normal under a heavy foot if you don't do it regularly. Can't say I've ever noticed a burning hair smell.

Probably hairy, dead animal stuck to your CAT.

Yes...I know exactly what you're talking about. I've noticed this on my 2010 MDX...if you accelerate quickly, you get that burning smell in the cabin. It's not a sulfur smell, and it doesn't smell like burning wiring...it's just a hot smell coming from somewhere.

Interesting. Looks like 2 issues, one being the completely normal smell of buildup being blown out of the cat. The other, the missing plugs allowing the smell into the cabin.
