The woosh sound is your CCV letting off vacuum pressure. It's normal - mine's done it for as long as I can remember. If it starts to sound like a fog horn, chewbacca, dying duck, then it's clogged and needs replacing. Most people replace around 80-100k as preventive maint as they tend to clog and the hoses get brittle and leak.
