They gained the extra horsepower because the exhaust manifold is actually INTEGRATED into the head. It's not like a regular head with 4 exhaust ports that then bolt to an exhaust manifold. In this case the exhaust manifold is part of the head and you just have a large single port which the exhaust pipe bolts to.

The interesting part is that THEORETICALLY people could pop their heads off and port both the heads and the "exhaust manifold" for increased flow instead of having to buy headers.
