Need Some Guidance on PCV Etcetera

I'm having some boost issues. I just pulled the dip stick and opened the oil filler cap at the same time, and there was no change in the cars behavior. I read that there should be a change if your vehicle is not hemorrhaging air somewhere. I just changed my PCV like two months ago. What the actual fuck is going on with my car? Also, around the 4k RPM mark the car acts like it wants to cut out, and with throw misfire codes if I keep it at 4k for an extended period of time. Is there any advice out there that is definitive? I have read some threads, but they didn't seem to nail down the issue.

Check for an oil leak where the transmission meets the engine, could have been a faulty PCV blew out your rear main seal.

This^
Or the PCV has failed again! I had a brand new genuine PCV fail only two weeks after replacement and it took the rear main with it, VW warrantied the PCV but took no responsibility for the rear main unfortunately!
