The best thing to do is have someone start it cold cold and get under to see if you feel it or hear it.

Ohhhh well it could be a bad down stream O2 sensor or one or both of the cats is bad and clogging up. If its clogging up then it will sound like its leaking exhaust somewhere. While its running does the exhaust stink real bad?? Go to the tailpipe and have someone rev on it and it may sound like its clogged up.
