Default Steam coming out of radiator cap. Please help

I am having a weird issue with my Mitshimoto aluminum radiator. I have maybe only 2000 miles on this radiator. I just installed my rotated turbo kit on my 2002 WRX. My radiator cap is steaming around the neck. Its a 1.3 bar (19 lbs) cap. My overflow tank is working fine and fills up if need be. I don't understand how this cap can already be bad unless I am having a pressure problem. I replaced the thermostat with an OEM one and also replaced the cap with a new one. Still steams. I took the cap off and the steam was coming out the top of the radiator pretty bad. The only thing left to do is get the radiator flushed. I do not overheat at all. My fan also comes on at 204 degree F like it always has. Im stumped now Any help is appreciated. Thank you
