Wow.. 89mm pistons and cylinders..

I am in the process of tearing down what should of been a 90mm 2.7 and I found 89mm pistons and Mahle cylinders. I bought this motor from a mechanic who had it in his race car but he said it had 90mm. It is an aluminum case and has the squirters installed also .
What is great is that I am rebuilding a short stroke 2.5L for my race car and can use these to stay "legal". My question is does J&E stamp the bottom of their pistons with the diameter? Or are these mahle pistons like my cylinders???? This could be a jackpot for me saving tons of cash in my rebuild.
