BOV has started fluttering

i replaced my Rad yesterday, in the process i had to take the inlet hardpipe out, i disconnected all four hoses from it, i also cleaned the mushroom filter. As far as i know i have put it all back correctly. When everything was back together and i took it for a test drive i noticed the BOV was fluttering and i think the car is down on power

Any ideas on what I've done wrong or whats causing the fluttering valve ??

Cheers,

Yes, either that or you fitted the BOV the wrong way round.
Shouldn't be down on power though!
