new car 96 wrx import got a few qs and a small prob pls help !!!

hello just picked up a 96 import wrx with 65000 miles on 12 months mot for not a lot !!! when bought wouldnt boost properly so got it half price !!well fixed boost sort of taped up intercooler pipe- turbo very well got new pipe on order .well first q
1. boosts well now but if really floor it it goes off then boost just cuts out with a massive jolt very scary !!!and dump valve goes off ???? fine if boost slowly ??? this leads to
2.its an import still with km clocks so is restricted i beleive but i have 4 gadgets added i havent got a clue about so was wondering if any of these are the reason 1.apexi super afc with filter etc set to nothing.2,hks turbo timer again set to nothing.3.apexi boost system meter just a gauge i know !!!and 4.an electronic valve controller
well how the heck do i set this little lot up ???? dont really want more power as the car is way too fast anyway !!! i just to make sure i dont damage anything as it is a cracker all i want is when i want to give it a bit of wellie it doesnt cut boost straight out as it is quite scary and worried about damaging car ??? is it a fuel prob ie not enough getting through or are the controllers not set up for the performance available or is the speedo/ecu limiting the power ie cutting it out ????
and finally got an oil leak from turbo oil return to sump turbo end i think can any one tell me or post a pic where to find the pipe cheers peter !!!!

hiya mate, first how much is it boosting to?? and secondly seems like youre hitting the fuel cut / boost think i am reight in saying that it is desighned to stop the car boosting to much and preventing damage i once had my pipes off the solenoid the wrong way round and it is like hitting a brick wall,, cheers there is a diagram on here somewhere showing where all the solenoid pipes go to, or do you have a mbc?

mbc manual boost controller do you have one or is it got the standard solenoid? will be on the drivers side strut mount with two plugs and 3 small vacum pipes going to it if standard.
do you have the cel light on the dash ? and have you checked for codes?
i will try and find you the post on how to read codes on a classic,
cheers Ben
