they are all the same.

 

you need the longer top hose. which may need shortening a little bit if it was for the 1275GT body.

The thermostat housing sit at different angles on small & large bore engines, the hose adapts for the difference. Unless it still has the Metro housing, which has a flat top and an air bleed pipe that would need a header tank or blanking off.
