VPN speed on R7000

I installed ddwrt on my R7000 from a build i saw somewhere. I think its fairly recent. But my VPN speeds are low. I am running PIA vpn in the router and am getting only 20Mbps down speed compared to 180Mbps when VPN turned off. I also see anywhere from 60-100% cpu.
I have read somewhere that this is expected and that the router is ill suited for vpn. Anyone else having the same or different experience. Id very much like to get closer to my ISP speeds if possible.

Please help!
