it looks right in the picture.

Best bet, go and buy a new gasket for where it joints to the inlet manifold and line it up to the holes.

the box is quite wide but the holes look in the right place

Open a dispute and sent it back. The proper ones are one sealed unit and half as wide as that.

That right hand side will probably leak air

I think they have the engine code on the block near where the gearbox mounts onto it. It might just be the engine number, but you could always check the engine numbers on the V5 and check they are the same.
