Default Is this right? fitting my induction kit.

Alright, below is an image of my engine bay as standard




I wasn't quite sure what to do with the circled pipe so I left it hanging there and attached everything else and this is how it looked, you can see the pipe hanging there.





I was then told that the hanging pipe is a vaccum and I needed that connected to the air filter and I was told to put an oil breather on the pipe I had previously connected to the air filter and this is how it currently looks...





Is this correct? I think it is but im no mechanic lol, thanks
