There is a difference, hence the different part numbers for the same ratio. ;)
However, I understand that you can put V-6 gears into the 4 cyl housing.

Not really sure why one would want to do that, as the V-6 housing is thicker with more braces, the carrier is more complete and stronger, it uses 4 spider gears instead of 2, and uses bigger bearings.

I believe the V6 gears are stronger.
