It sounds like the converter for the right hand side exhaust is plugged, causing the manifold to heat up.

Causes for a red hot exhaust.....smoking hot!

Valve Timing,Ignition Timing,Rich Fuel Condition
Hope you stopped using it ,as soon as that issue started
The Exhaust Converter & O2 Sensors get ruined, if you
drove it much at all.
If a repair shop did any work on it,then you may want a different
shop going foward,because they fail basic auto mechanics
& hope nothing is ruin for good

You replaced the Plugs Wires in the wrong
firing order ?

Sort of creates a timing issue & causes the
exhaust to get hot

Other causes,vacuum leaks in to exhaust
or rich fuel mixture,but not to the point of red hot

That smell of exhaust in the cabin

leaking exhaust system, most likely toward the front, you can test the exhaust by blocking the exhaust with your hand or a friends hand,( it gets hot after a while so only do this when the car is cold) while you listen for leaks, if you cant block the exhaust then the exhaust is not what is causing the smell

New catalytic converter gets red hot

clogged , check the rest of your exhaust after cat to see if it gets hot

you can buy a no contact thermometer for less than $55.00

but the shop that installed the cat should have that

good luck

Red hot exhaust manifods

Make sure that your catalytic converter and exhaust is not plugged..Also check for propper map sensor operation,the reading that the map sensor supplies to the pcm is used to adjust ignition timing and fuel delivery.If the timing is being retarded to far , the exhaust exiting the cylinders will be extremly hot and will produce the effect you are having...Good Luck...
