Help Diff Housing Wanted.

Last weekend, with the help of my neighbour Simon, we replaced the gearbox on my v6 GT. It had suffered a diff failure and we replaced it with a used unit, Quaife diff and new clutch.
The install went pretty smoothly and we intended to complete the rebuild this weekend.

SWMBO didn't want the knackered parts lying on the drive all week so they got scrapped last Monday.

You're probably already ahead of me by now but Yesterday we realised that the diff housing on the new gearbox is different to the original. The gearbox mount cannot be bolted into it. D'oh!

So, to get to the point, does anyone have an old gearbox gathering dust which I could pinch the diff housing from?

I've found a photo (one of Chris155's) which illustrates the difference, it's the shiny part on the left that I'm after.
If anyone can help I'll be very grateful, Beer tokens at the ready.

You might be better off asking the question in the GTA lounge.

What did the old gearbox come out of? If its the right box it should fit.
