Yours is a different engine than the one in my 200q but I had similar
symptoms when the multi-pronged breather hose on the rear of the valve cover
rotted through last year ... it would still make full boost but also did a
passable impression of a small airhorn. The funny thing is that it didn't
leak under vacuum and wouldn't leak unless the car was under load ... I only
found it when I removed the valve cover to replace the timing belt.
