Raw Gas Coming From Exhaust Pipe 1996 Mustang GT

'96 Mustang GT with 70,000 km, just installed an X-pipe and cat back, CAI and under drive pulleys about two weeks ago. Was at the gas station today and discovered raw gas dripping from both tail pipes and and a strong smell in the car. Exhaust gas is clear, no loss of acceleration or top end power. HELP!!!

The gas-drip is usually a sign of running rich.

Did you happen to change the O2 sensor while installing the exhaust, or at any point in the previous 70k? That would be a good place to start if not

Your definetly running rich. You should get a tuner that will compensate for the off road pipes and other mods.

Didn't change the O2 sensor, but now I'm wondering if the garage that did the bolt on mods damaged the sensor when they did the change over? Also... the x-pipe is catted, so I can rule that one out! Thanks for the help, please keep the suggestions coming?
