I believe your on the right track, although it looks good installed you will likely find that the PCV valve from the 1.8T is not a good match for your motor due to it being engineered for a forced induction application.

The valve you're using was never meant to regulate manifold vacuum as the 1.8T uses the suction within the turbo's intake for PCV function, not manifold vacuum.
