1992 300e 2.6 Head Gasket help

I'm in the process of new head gasket for a 2.6 liter motor. I realize most of these W124 cars are 3.0 liters. Guy at auto parts store told me that the head gasket set for the 2.6 and the 3.0 are the same. That can't be right, is it? Unless they achieved displacement through same bore, but different stroke or something.

Good reason to buy from a MB Indy or MB and not a guy who sells "furrin" parts...

Same crap today, Crash Test dummy behind the counter didn't know what a "Rounded Bolt Socket" was and refused to check the SK book (its in there) so I spent my Lunch Hour at Home Despot finding the tool myself and ignoring the Genetic Defect at the counter who was in iPod drone heaven...

Glad Fastlane and FCP are out there and my MB dealer is open til 6 pm and 1 on Sat.
