Exhaust manifolds (AGAIN?!)

I stopped by the parts department the other day and learned that the 
newer cars (200Ts) actually have a two-piece exhaust manifold, one for 
cyl's 1&2 + turbo, the other for cyl's 3-5 + wastegate, with a flexible 
hose that connects the two parts.  Are there performance advantages to 
this configuration?  Has anyone retrofitted this to an ur-Q?  How 
available are these manifolds in the *previously owned* market 
(read ... wrecking yards)?
