yeh they are the same. You could even get one from the 16v is you cant get one off an 8v and it will fit.
Thanks phatmonkey thanked for this post

the mk2 and 2b 1.2 8vs will fit the 1.2 16vs will (tho the gear ratios might be slightly different i.e. might be 2/300 rpm higer or lower at a certain speed) but it will fit and work fine.

The 1.2 sporting 6 speed gearboxes will fit aswell. A few people have done it and say it makes thier 8v slightly faster, but its only slightly.
