Oil on turbo

So recently ive been noticing that my car has been asking me to put oil in a lot more than usual like 3 quarts in the last 1500 or so miles. I also have been experiencing misfires and SES lights on cold startups occasionally and when i had full catless exhaust i was smoking out the left tailpipe. Right now im only running a jb4, ams FMIC, and Afe dci. I decided to take a look under the car and noticed quite a bit of oil on the skid plate so i looked at the turbos, one was fine the other was partially covered in oil

Looks like one of the seals in your turbo is leaking. If you're under any kind of warranty, I'd remove all mods and bring to dealer as they're likely to replace the turbos.
