H2S? This is most commonly associated with sewer gas!

No, the induction service will not help your nose, but it should help your engine. It's a cleaning service for the air induction on your engine.

Sounds like the catalytic converters aren't liking wide open throttle operation. Is the engine up to full operating temperature when you "get on it"?
