    im guessing the difference your talking about is the difference in housing between the transverse application turbos, and the longitudinal versions for the a4/passat etc.....

    Sounds like the actuator to me, all Turbo's need one to actuate the wastegate flap, it's just some units are sold without them.

    Some with some without. doesn't make a difference for power it seems.

    most late ones have it.

    Oh you're talking about the actual exhaust downpipe, not the Turbo itself. It's a pre-cat located close to the Turbo so it warms up faster, this results in better cold start emissions.
