If you are referring to the metal cap with six nuts on top that is attached to the exhaust manifold, that is the wastegate.  The barb is supposed to be open to ambient, so no line to look for.  The BPV is tucked down lower and towards the front.  It has a small vacuum line coming from the valve cover.  OEM one is plastic.

The search function on Audifans generally sucks.  It seems to work fine for the main q-list but not so well for the s-cars list.  If you include s-cars in the search it seems to help.
