Looking for ideas as to why I get a gas odor under boost. Just installed a Mighty Mouse catch and I get the odor under boost. Normal driving Ok. Just looking for a place to start

Post more details about your setup. Is it OEM fuel lines or aftermarket? Returnless fuel system or boost reference? What is your AFR during WOT? Are you sure it's fuel and not oil?

The more detailed you are the more we may be able to help out.

Could just be smelling blowby gases being vented out the filter at the top of the MM can. They make a "road race" top that you can use to vent back into the intake, which would get rid of the smell.
