Intermittent Oil burning smell/Smoke with new turbos

I had my turbos replaced under warranty less than a year ago. I am no longer under warranty and have recently started noticing smoke and an oil smell when I come to a stop. This happens on rare occasions and does not necessarily happen when I am getting into boost as I have thought that may provoke it but it does not. I know it may be the turbo seals but are there any other possibilities? It never does it until it at least 120 degrees. When it does it it can let out alot of smoke but it only does it for a few seconds and then stops. I am xxxless but can differ between fuel and oil smell. I am just looking for any experience or ideas that anyone may have.
