HELP! Smoke and burning smell

Pulled in to the petrol station earlier and noticed white smoke coming out of my bonnet scoop and a strong smell of burning. lifted bonnet, the smoke appeared to be coming from behind/under the turbo area. There was not a lot of smoke and it cleared quite quickly.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Re: HELP! Smoke and burning smell

sounds like the rocker cover gasket, turbo side. gaskets leaking and drips of oil are landing on the hot down pipe and burning off. not mega expensive to get done around 200 i think, and as long as you get it done sooner rather than later no lasting side effects.
