If the exhaust system has been worked on recently, and the manifolds were off, I would take a close look at the manifold gaskets. Especially the first gasket on the left side or the last on the right(#% and #4 cyls). Very possible the gasket was installed 180* out which will allow exhaust to fill the engine bay and bleed into the cabin.
