help me please :(

can anyone help me please when i let off after boost i get a white mist or smoke from the drivers side vent . ive opened the bonnet and if i rev it hard i see water vapor escaping from the dump valve????? its losing water but not over the floor when idling or if its been sat there. it doesnt overheat either. someone said it could be the cooper washers on the water feed to the turbo another said cracked internal turbo casing or head gasket failure...... anyone have any ideas also its a 98 uk model

This maybe the reason if the after market dump valve has failed, I dont think this make of DV fares too well on here...
