I have had m times where I feel a bit bogged down. I'll pop the check valve out in the breather cap tomorrow.

if you put an aftermarket exhaust on the car it will definitely help you as well

Well pull it out and it will pop right off! Our engines don't need the breather cap. It was a bunch of bull Tracy from the former RX company started saying people needed. It ended up causing more problems that anything. Some even had their dip stick fly off because of all the unwanted pressure.

Do you have your stock cap? I've heard it was only necessary on high hp applications but I really doubt that it would help at all no matter the power range...

It is really a weird situation. I think the better your rings sealed the more crankcase pressure you build. That is my guess any way.

So I popped the nipple out of the engine breather and the noise has definitely gone away. The only issue I come across is sometimes coming to a complete stop my car will stall out. This only seems to occur right after I punch it a little hard. Any ideas on what's the issue? Spark plugs, or torque converter maybe?

Did you feel a difference when you popped the value? Also check your catch can and make sure it's not full. The breather has the tendency to fill it up prematurely. It being full causes stalls and unstable idle.

Just drained it and not much came out, so I'll go on and see if the problem continues. Its happened 3 times since ive gotten the turbo kits installed, all of which when Ive come to complete stops after giving it a good punch

Sounds like the engine is maybe lacking fuel after a hard run. Also if you haven't already check for lines that could of blown off. Like on the solenoid for the boost control or by the wastegates and BOV. And the catch can lines. Just little things to check first with a turbo car when things start to act weird.

You can't see the turbos from the engine bay very easily.
