Default Overheating Issue

Im having a overheating problem that i can't figure out. First off its a 04 sti with stage 2 cobb tune and supporting mods. The problem started this morning on my way to work when i blew a radiator hose about a hour into the trip. So i waited 3 hours on a parts store to open only to replace the hose and try and continue on my way. New hose on and refilled antifreeze and i was off only to make it about a mile and the temp gauge shot right back up and continued to peak before i got pulled over. I turned the heat on to try and cool it off but it was blowing cold air which was odd since the car was overheating. I pulled over and tried to get help then ended up having to eat a tow bill home. I replaced the thermostat as a go to cheap quick fix since it fit the symptons but no luck and i am now stumped. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You need to bleed the air pocket out of the cooling system. If it is blowing cold air when you turn the heat on, then there is definitely an air pocket in the heater core....
