Sneeze/Burp/F**t Valves

So - what's the bottom line, gents?  While at the Texas A&M Auto-X 
last weekend (Placed first in B-Stock with my 280 ZXT, nudge, nudge) 
I once again heard the Mitsu Eclipses and Eagle Talons "sneezing" as 
they backed off the gas.  

I was wondering if Audi did in fact build in any kind of a sneeze/etc 
valve.  From the posts in the recent digest, I INFER that there is a 
valve in the stock turbo cars but that it's not vented to atmosphere, 
but within the system?????????

I feel confused on this.  Bob D'Amato's post sounded like his had NO 
valve, and that he added one, but ran into some kind of chip problem. 
I don't see how venting the excess pressure could cause this.

Could someone please explain:
1)  Do the 5K and/or 200 series have a "sneeze/surge" valve built 
in which vent excess intake pressure when the throttle is lifted 
2)  If not, can one be fitted without undue stress or expense?  (I 
know, stupid question, tee hee, giggle giggle...)
