Reverting back to stock exhaust: help with vacuum line / golf tee mod

So I uninstalled the BMW performance exhaust and reverted back to the stock one. process was straightforward.

However, to get the PE installed the mechanic who did it plugged a little snug screw to the vacuum line and ziptied it so it wouldn't be dangling.

Now that I installed the stock exhaust again, I wanted to just put it back on but the hose is too wide for that small little nipple on the actuator (picture below, stolen from another thread )

So I went ahead and left the vacuum line as-was and ziptied the little lever piece on the muffler that opens the bypass to the second exhaust tip so that it remained open. I figured if I didn't do that, since the vacuum line isn't connected I wouldnt get the bypass under WOT and the car would be too silent. Was anything wrong with this logic?

Also, can I just leave that actuator nipple exposed or should I be covering it with something? If so, with what and where do I buy it?

I'd rather get the exhaust to 100% stock if someone can help.. but if it's too complicated I wouldn't mind having it with the "golf tee" mod that I currently have

Thanks!

Why did you uninstall the performance exhaust? Too loud or drone or what?

hose has some extra length, so cut the oversized end off and then plug it on.
