Thats called burning rubber
When the turbo is boosting its also creating lots of heat.
Look for stuff thats close to it to see if its melting.

I Guess you meant like a Burning Oil (Diesel) Smell, isn't it?
Does it leaks Oil?

Probably cracked heads in the exhaust port.
Check you coolant regularly and you can drive it for a long time still.

Keep a eye on all fluid levels and for smoke, thats all we can suggest.
