I would think so Yes. The Engine is designed for a certain amount of CFM air flow, start up, low speed, medium/high etc. etc.
What you had before was a leak in a SEALED system, so you did not get the proper amount of Air Flow.
I think with your new Breather Air Hose, you are getting the necessary Air Flow, as per specs!
( while you are at it, might as well carefully check the other air hose and the ( twin?? ) Air Filters )
( a MAF Cleaning might be in order ).
good Luck, enjoy.
