Default L26 swap into 2000 SLE, block mounting points the same?

I found a good deal on a 2008 series III 3800, and I want to put it in my SLE. Just wondering if the holes in the block are the same, so I can use the front engine bracket off the L36? Thanks!

The block is so much in fact the same that being a Series III motor you will notice the block says Series II. GM didn't even bother to change the casting. It is the same exact block.
