So I got tired of emptying my catch can all the time, plus I don't think it was doing anything for me and I took it off this weekend and put the stock pcv pack on. Now I don't get the same kick in the pants at upper RPM's when I hit boost. My boost gauge still shows the same levels of boost and it holds vacuum well. I also get a new "whoooossssshhhhh" sound while it is in boost. Is it possible that I am still holding boost but the boost is being diverted somewhere else? The PCV was the original one I took off 1.5 years ago.
The car seems to run fine otherwise, just it really seems to run out of breath. Maybe I should put the catch can back on? Opinions appreciated.
