Hi Shawn,
Check the small hose on the back of the engine, up top, near the head
cover.  I recently had this split on my car.  It is an "L" shaped hose
(elbow) that will be under pressure during boost.  Your symptoms sound
just like mine...I would have boost for a while (maybe up to 1 bar) and
then a sudden loud "whooosh" sound--YMMV depending on the severity of
the split.  If this is it it's a cheap fix < $40 at the stealer.
