Default Bov stuck?

So I'm still boosting At full psi but when the turbo starts to spool it sounds like alot of air is just being sucked in like I have a hose loose or something... I checked my hoses this morning an everything is tight the only thing I can think of would be can the bov be stuck open? Because there is no blow off from the pressure when I shift or anything

Does what I explained sound like it is opening early? Or gettin stuck open? Cause it closes at idle or do you think I may need to change out the spring on it?

Then put on your stock one for now. You can always crush it if you need to. This way you can see if this is your problem or not.
