DIC or CPS

Hey guys, I've been searching for the symptoms that have started coming up over the last day or so. Car runs fine, Idles fine. Start going into boost at WOT and roughly between 5-7 PSI the car just falls flat on it's face. Boost will continue to build to roughly 10 Psi but car feels like it's going to blow. I searched and it seems to be The DIC or CPS, Problem is I am getting NO CEL'S
Car is a T5

I do have a few bolt ons
Tial 50mm BOV
Grimspeed MBC
2 1/2" Intake

Recently done maintenance is:
Oil Change M1 0w-40
Evap Purge valve
Fuel Filter
Spark Plugs (BCPR7ES-11) Gapped to .040

Any ideas? I wish it was getting a code to help isolate the issue but no such luck

Scored a local DIC cassette, Will swap it out and see if it corrects the issue

Did it start doing it all of a sudden?

It sort of sounds like you might have a boost leak, or do you have an open air filter and aftermarket BOV?

I Just got to the bottom of it, The Fuel line from the tank to the filter was pinched, Reclocked the fitting and car runs like a top again!
