its not a burning smell, its smells like oil.. just plain oil... everytime i boost I get this smell like if you opened the oil fill cap and took a wiff.. I had a hose on my pvc system off. I put that back on and i still have the smell.. anyone else ever get this smell?

I get that smell from a bad cam tensioner gasket. Oil seeps out and down the back of the block. It collects on top of the transmission.

have you checked the PCV system for cracks or leaks?

Check the spot where the O-ring is at on the PCV where it mounts to the block.
