the answer is no, the difference is the depth of the oil pump, i had this where i got a 4 stud one(i think)and tried fitting it to a 3stud and it was hitting on the cam!

so thats the difference, the pump body depth even though it maybe a 30mm pump same as the other type the body is offset slightly further out of the case if that makes sense.
