BURNING OIL SMELL FROM ENGINE BAY!!!!!!!

I just had my transmission rebuilt again i have a 2000 vtec auto matic prelude. I had it rebuilt by the same trans shop they did a good job the first time just felt the 2nd and 3rd were not tight enought so i complained and they re did the job now my auto shifts nice. But heres the problem after the transmission job my car smells like burning oil whenever i drive hard or fast and i see faint white smoke coming from the engine bay. Do you think they might have stripped my oil cooler through the process of taking out my transmission? and could it be also that i started using synthetic oil in a 201500 high mileage prelude could my seals be going bad from using mobil 1 full synthetic motor oil on such a high mileage vehicle?

how long have you had it back for? If they had any spill on it and this is the first time youi drove it, it could still be burning it off.
