Turbo seal or drainage issue?

Hi guys, I have a GT30R turbo that just gravity drains back to the crankcase. It's been this way for over 6 years and has never had an issue. I have recently been driving the car around the city, there can be some steep inclines in car parks etc. If I sit too long on a incline, about 20 seconds it starts blowing smoke, the smoke goes away once the car is flat again.

Wondering if:

a: The turbo seals need replacing as the oil really shouldn't be entering the exhaust even if it wasn't draining, right?

b: I need to get a pump as a few others here have done for drainage?
