    Rad cap, AST tank or cap. Get it checked.

    Start it up with the rad cap off, let it get warm, do you see bubbles?

    TBH dude you need to check if it has gone or not. If it has it will be better to break it as you will get more money. I bought one yesterday with water seal failure with a single turbo for £1000. They arent worth anything as a whole car with the engine gone, especially on twin turbo setup.

    Do as Kieron said and do the champaign test and check for bubbles in the water housing. If no bubbles then the chances are it isnt water seal failure. All of them puff out a bit of white smoke on start up as its the condensation in the breather and exhaust system.

    If its chucking coolant into the overflow tank then it sounds like the cap has gone which is a £10 fix. Also check all the water pipes. A pin prick in one of the hoses will cause the system to lose water.

    Good luck with it
