Fumes

I have done some searching but everything related to the title brings up diesels with cracked manifolds.
I am getting the smell of fumes in the cabin when giving it the beans, i smelled it the other day and thought it maybe a one off or coming from someone else but today I confirmed it. I drove around 70 miles motorway at 70(ish) and no smell. When nearly home I floored it in second to the red line and same in 3rd and the smell came. Done it again few mins later and smell again.

What could cause this ??
Cheers

Have you got a breather on the cam cover? I had one connected to a oil catch can and had the same thing.

I wouldn't worry - mine has always stunk like this at high revs and it hasn't broken in more than three years. Enjoy the smell!
