Default Power loss

I heve a power loss that feels like I am loosing boost. I have checked all lines and intercooler hoses, but everything looks good. There are no CELs. Does anyone know if the stock blowoff valve or pressure relief valve can hang open? I haven't seen any drawings so I'm not sure.I would appreciate the help, thanks.

Did you do a boost leak check (pressure test)? You really can't tell with the engine running if there is a leak or not. You do the test with the engine off and you can hear anything leaking.

Thanks Mean Green, but after posting I went back out to the car and found my leak! I put the car on rhino ramps, had the wife rev to 3,000 RPM while I felt around the IC hoses. Later I took a pen light to view the lines under the air box hose, and thats where it was. A line under the hose coming from the turbo had blown off. Before I had tie wrapped the other lines in the area, but this one appeared to have the connector molded in so I didn't. Now all the lines are tie wrapped that I can't put a regular hose clamp on. By the way the flow back catch can/brass check valve combination is still working very well. Take care.
