... look at the positive side Louis-Alain ... better this happened in the garage with you watching than out on the road!

I don't have an answer about compatibility with the KH ... but that's the only place you would have to look ... all the other engines have the WC turbo housing.  Given what we all know about Audi's support for old models I don't know that I'd give the dealer the pleasure ... I'd take the assembly to a hose shop to see if they couldn't attach standard fittings to the factory ends ... I suspect it will be easily possible to re-use the ends to have standard fittings attached.
