No extra parts are required, assuming you are talking about the Forge Motorsport valve. The Forge valve fits in exactly the same way as the Bosch valve. It is literally a 3 or 4 minute job.

Sounds like you boght the wrong type of vavle , you need a recirculating valvl you can't use a blow-off on our cars ( one without that a connectionf for that pipe)

Both steel pipes should have a rubber hose to connect to valve in.
