Default 1.6 vs 1.8 gasket kit differences?

Have a 1.6L and had previously purchased an ebay gasket kit for it. Never ended up evening cracking open the box and now I have lined myself up a 1.8L that I will be installing.

Can anybody give me a general idea of which gaskets/seals (front/rear) might be different? Due to bore spacing I know the intake/exhaust and head gaskets will be different. What about the oil pan gasket?

There is no oil pan gasket per se, just a couple of little rubber bits to go around the rear main cap thingy and the oil pump.

Cam seals will be different if it's an '01+.

Crank seal (front) if your 1.6 was a shortnose.

Valve cover gasket, obviously, is different.
