2.2 T or 2.2 E piston?????

I need to replace my set of Cylinders & Pistons due to excessive wear. I found a replacement set for a reasonable price, which was sold as a "T" set. The Pistons are Mahle made.

My own "T" set has Kolbensmidt pistons and had a 5mm oil ring.

When I bought new rings with the "T" set, I found that the oil ring was 5mm, but the groove in the piston is 4mm.

Do I have a genuine set of "T" pistons or are the "E"? Is there a difference between the 2 oil grooves? (4mm & 5mm)

Inside the Mahle pistons it shows an "E". Does this mean it's an "E" piston?

I'm puzzeled!

Anyway, what are the differences between T & E pistons and can I use E pistons in a T engine without difficulties?

Thanks for your help!!!
