Default dewalt 616 vs 618

Hello, I am wondering weather the 618 and 616 motor outer housing dimensions are the same. I seem to have seen a kit that said fixed and plunge bases for the 616 or 618 so the motor has to be the same size right other than horsepower i know. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Same motor dimensions, different components inside.
No VS or soft start on the 616.
