If the evenings have been getting cooler in your locale - check for dead critters that may have crawled in there to keep warm....

I swear I've heard stories of rats crawling into the engine bay and chewing in the wires, hell it happened to me about a yr and half ago.

I believe someone from Sweden posted photos of s huge rat like creature that was chewing on the wiring.

The snabb intake pipe can get melted by the metal brake booster lines. Check out the blue silicone, I'm sure that's what is burning on yours. You'll have to bend those metal lines out of the way. Hopefully you didn't burn through.

I would not worry about it like I said after my FMIC install I had the same smell for a week or two.

I did. I even brought it back to my indy and had them look and they said it was normal with new parts, couplers and intercooler. I guess it could be something else I'm just telling what mine did.
