01 Base Model, 1st time honda owner

And will never turn away from a prelude again, previous car was a spec v sentra and this car was well worth the extra money..... i have just one problem though =/

swithched the oil over to synthetic oil at 94k (5spd) with only CAI,Springs

when i drive vtec seems to hit smoother but while im in vtec i get a certain gassy oily smell through my vents.... this did not happen b4 when i was running castrol 5w-30, i have not noticed any drop in performance but its kinda irriating a little and wanna make sure nothing is seriously wrong..... any help would be appreciated, thanks

your most likely burning oil in vtec out the exhaust, which is normal.

if it's getting to be too disgusting/nauseating of a smell i'd just go back to dino, or maybe a blend.
