I have had my car on the road a couple of months. The dipstick broke loose from it's mounting bracket. I had it rewelded. It does not seen to fit very well in the side of the oil pan. During hard acceleration I smell oil burning what seems like off the headers. May be coming from loose fitting of dip stick. Anyone else have this problem?

I would check for leaking valve covers. Very common problem.

Only during hard exceleration? If all the time maybe valve covers as mentioned. If just during hard driving it may be your dip stick. I did a track event one day and didn't have my dip stick 100% down in the tube. It blew oil all over my engine compartment. This can happen on hard exceleration and end up right on the headers.

Make sure your PCV valve is connected and working correctly.
