Default Mopar BOV and possible Boost leak

Hey guys question about my 04 GT w/ mopar BOV

When I installed it I notice a sudden power loss. I installed the mopar BOV and it seems like all my boost leaks from the bov. It's not holding psi at all. when it normally will spoon it pulls real hard, but w/ the BOV on I get nothing. Was I suppose to install the rubber spring loaded gasket as well or do I leave that off and keep it? Any feed back will be good.

Thank you

the spring and gasket inside the surge valve should stay were its at the spring and gasket seals the turbo

all you sould have to do is remove the 3 bolts and install the gasket>plate>valve and put the bolts back in.

if you still have a leak use some RTV on the gasket between the plate and the turbo.

Well.... don't I feel like a retart..
So it should be (from the turbo) Paper Gasket> Mopar Plate> The rubber Valve> and cover?

Wow I feel dumb!
