My turbo didn't have a port either...so here is what I did, and it works great: I removed the breather tube elbow from the throttle body (the one with the tube that goes to the oil fill neck), used a tap to put NPT threads in the hole left by it ( I forget what size, it was 1/8 or 1/4 NPT I believe) and screwed a small brass elbow that had a hose barb on one end into it. This way, my wastegate is connected to a port after the turbo and before the throttle body, just as it should be, and that port was going to be capped and unused anyway after the turbo install.
