The smell is typically oil dripping on the heat exchanger and finding its way in. That will not change if stock exchangers are put on as the leak needs fixed. If the smell is exhaust fumes then the headers have failed creating a dangerous situation.
Sound is mostly a function of the muffler so a different issue than exchangers.
If you do go back to stock exchangers you can expect more lag and the loss of a few HP.
