A common problem with Gen 2 GTSs is the cabin exhaust vents getting knocked out of place.  When this happens the exhaust can enter the car when the window/s are open.

All that is necessary is to replace the vent in it's spot at the rear corners of the car's quarter panels.  The 4 vents are located 2 per side.  Pull the side carpet back and see if the vent panels are lined up properly with the rubber seals in a horizontal position.  It will normally be obvious if the vent panels are knocked out, they can't go far but they do move back from the car's body losing the seal and allowing exhaust to enter the cabin.

See picture below to see misalignment.
