Fitted recirculating valve is this ok?

#1 i found a spare hose because the thin hose would not reach the inlet manifold also it makes a bit of a sound too is it supposed to do this? i have got a k&n induction kit i just want to know if i have fitted recirculating valve correctly to my car as you can see in the pic it had a atmospheric dump valve

Here is the link

I would try and get a slightly longer actuating pipe (the blue pipe) if i was you. It is streched quite a lot and my not operate the dump valve properly. The dump valve operates when there is a negative pressure in the manifold, as this happens it may kink the pipe. You could probably pick up some longer vacuum pipe from somewhere like B&Q..

Hope this makes sense, i tend to waffle on a bit!
