question about housings

I am planning on rebuilding an mark viii diff housing with 3.73 gears and a torsion lsd within the next couple of weeks. my question is, I believe the mark housing to be 8.8 as well as the sc. so was it only the v6 cars that got the 7.5, and all v8s and scs got the 8.8? I know this may be a stupid question, but i wanted to be sure before I ordered parts and my search yielded nothing useful

thanks,
-steve
