manifold porting[gasket] is the same,the difference is the possition of items on the engine and manifolds like the water pump and pipes.

you have FWD and vans with all sorts of arrangments.

my experience is that the exhaust manifold is standard on all vesions.
the stationery LD20 pictured at auction had a turbo manifold to get a horrzontal outlet.

some conversions also use the non turbo intake manifold.im told that gas manifolds fit with a tidy up.

the old engines had garret turbo and the newer types might be kkk or similar.[not seen my self] ide guess that mounting flanges might be different for the modern versions.

the newer engine tend to have bolt on intake flanges to allow extras like intercoolers-- prob to suit low volume users like forklifts and marine use.
