    Sounds like a leak to me if the bypass is all plumed up properly. Best check all the pcv pipes around the inlet manifold and to the bypass.

    have checked all, had it pressure tested today and no leaks. hoses around manifold are fine too, uprated them with silicone ones
    also got post cat lambda fault code but i have a decat, would this cause issues?
