I'm not sure if this will help, but in the U.S. we have a lot of 2 liter engines. For many years now, people have successfully taken on projects where they replace their 2 liter Nord engine with a 2 liter Twin Spark. In these cases, the exhaust manifolds have never been interchangeable, and a new exhaust manifold is one of the hurdles that must be cleared. Here is a web site which you may find informative: Alfa Romeo Performance Engines

If I understand your question correctly, it won't work. the exhaust side of the TS head is 90 degrees in relationship to the base of the head, not the almost 45 degree (or so it appears ) of the nord. The exhaust flanges of the 116 or 115 headers are angled to fit the nord head, TS headers are not, and height is different, header outlet will not match the exhaust, port spacing might not work. And the I.D. is too small. I did cut up a used nord header and match up to a 115 spider, but only for an frustrated owner/freind who wanted something temporary untill the set he had paid for arrived. They where ugly, but worked as a temp fix.
