Have you checked for boost leaks? Intercooler piping, BPV and gasket, boost line. Make they arent cracked or have holes in them also.

Oh yeah, aftermarket blow off valves (especially those set to full atmospheric venting) are often known to cause problems. We might be able to help a little more if you provide a full list of mods...
