Unhappy turbo

im still having the problem of my car overheating now and again and realising its only when the cars under boost, all that happens is the water pressures up to hot and blows out of the rad cap, ive tried allsorts and head gasket is ok, looked a bit closer into it seems the turbo is the problem i think?!, is there a possibility under boost of the seals leaking and blowing air into the coolant? also how can i go about checking it and the other question is how can i find out what turbo is on the car and if the seals/turbo have gone then whats the best replacement and were do i get one? oh yeah the car is a 98 wrx E 280bhp one i think?

it wont get to darlington i dont think... i here theres a scooby clinic in lincoln which is a little closer. has anyone had any work done there?

also was thinking the water pump myself because heating blows hot and cold even when coolant is full. i dont think its airlocked because i can feel a flow through my radiator , its been done next week along with cambelt etc etc
