The 2-piece mainfold was not factory installed on any turbo (that I know
of).  While I was looking for a 2-piece for the 88 5kcstq, I looked at an 89
tq, a 90 tq, and a 91 200t (non-q).  None of them had the 2-piece manifold.
I figured that if the 91 200t (non-q) didn't have it, it was never factory
installed in the states.  Some of the cars DO have them.  I believe these
are warranty returns or owner replacements (like mine).
Of course, YMMV,
