LCI engine swap in Pre LCI

Alright guys, so long story short, my motor went bad. I got an engine from a 08' 128i and about to swap it into my 07' 525i. I see that the pcv stuff is different on the LCI than Pre. So question. Do I need to swap all my stuff from my old engine to get it to work on the new or will the new pcv setup work fine in my car? Everything else looks like it's just a straight plug n play.

I would stick with whatever pcv the new engine has.

I know the ecu is different. Have you got the new ecu too? Pre lci is msv70, lci is msv80? It's a digital vs analog MAF. But I'm not sure when the switch happened in the 1 series.
