Ok so it looks like these are for a 147 1.6 but they came out of a 2.0 145 cf1?!

So I have some old pistons and their measurements are as follows:

147 2.0 pistons - 82.2 mm diameter
145 2.0 pistons - 82.2 mm diameter

...then I have these pistons in the above pic, seemingly pistons for a 1.6 ts engine at 82.0 mm diameter

Would it work for me to use these pistons in my 2.0 with 2.0 rings assuming the end gaps were correct?

2.0 engines have 83mm bore, so there is something wrong...Never seen before these type of pistons, they seem to have deeper valve pockets and seems like they protrude a bit more than OEM type pistons..I think it's a good idea to check the engine number written onto the engine block, maybe this can clear things up..

Turns out these are 147 1.6 pistons.

Someone had replaced their 2.0 engine in this 145 with a 147 1.6 engine.

Nope, gearbox looks original
