i just swapped my b16a about 2 months ago, i was told the old 40-60000 was on the motor, when i checked it out and did compress tests it was a solid motor so i bought it, on my stock exhaust it wouldnt stink like this, but i had to replace it cause i was losing power. my pass e-tests were good but it was a d series!

umm well you pretty much answered it yourself you have a test pipe its gonna smell like crap since you have no catalytic converter.the only reason u smell it when stopped or when you get out is because when u drive your leaving the smell behind you.
