CF3 engine ? how to tell if I only have the block ?

I have just bought a 2001 32310 156 engine off of Ebay.

I am worried though that the block is not the same as my CF3.

I need to know how to tell if this is a CF3 block and pistons.

I am having my doubts that it is as the cylinder head gasket is not the very thin metal gasket but the older thicker one.

I need the CF3 engine as I have a turbo fitted as use the older thicker gasket to reduce the CR.

How can I tell for sure if this is a CF3 ir not ?

I am suspecting that the car has had an earlier engine fitted and the ancillaries swapped over.

Its only the block and pistons that I am interested in.

The pistons are stamped....

Cyl 1 = 1301 2G2
Cyl 2 = 1301 2G2
Cyl 3 = 1501 2G1
Cyl 4 = 1501 2G1

The block is stamped...
