I believe your most likely to make full boost in 2nd and 3rd gear. I dont think your car will make full boost in 1st gear (although, im probably mistaken).

Overheating is contraindicative of turbo failure... no boost would equal less power and less need to dissipate heat. Cooling system issues (radiator, fans, and thermostat) or headgasket issues are likely causes of overheating.
Possibly clogged cat-con or collapsed exhaust might cause both overheating and power loss. Also, may be slipped ignition timing.
Overheating and power loss might be coincidental and unrelated. My sparkplugs went bad within 20 miles, caused low-speed bogging and on-boost bogging. Threw in a fresh set of NGKs and I am a happy camper again.
