All in all you have a leak plus check were police console used to be, sometimes installers drill right through floor board allowing exhaust to come into cabin. Turn off hvac before next start, and see if smell is still there, if it is check crank case vent tube to see if attached to intake. Hvac pulls in outside air and can pull in leaking fumes from the engine compartment.
there's this thing called at the dealership called "smoke test", i doubt you'll need that test until youve run out of options.
what you need is to have the car lifted and the holes plugged. you most likely have holes that need plugged, you gotta have the car lifted to find them. take it to someone with experience plugging interceptors, they'll know where to look and how to plug them.
once they're plugged may take a few days for smell to disappear
I was checking under the hood to see if anything looked out of place. I noticed some foam sealant on the plastic cowl vent panel was out of place. The blower motor is under this panel. I took the panel off (it is two pieces) and noticed a few areas where it was missing. I replaced the foam gasket. I bought some window foam sealant from home depot. The 3/8 was the right size. It helped a lot in reducing the smell. There might still be some screw holes from removed equipment that need to be plugged.
