poss BOV probs

I have a '99 impreza turbo (uk). sweet car, full subaru service hist.etc. I noticed something a bit worrying the other day. Accelerate hard up to about 5k revs, as I apply clutch to cange gear the whole car feels like its juddering and even the drivers door rattles. the bottom of the door has made contact with the door frame(small dings in it and scuffing)
Its has a large bailey bov, could this be the cause? anyone else experienced this?
I'm wondering if the bov is making the engine drop revs too quick when accelerating.
thanks in advance
