please help!!!

Hi all this is my first post so howdo to all! Ok i have a 316 touring estate 1.6i E36 1997 4cyl.
I dropped a valve recently wrecking a piston head with deep scores and scratches. Rather than strip to rebuild ive bought a used engine with guarantee to swap over.
But.....'n here's the thing, my old unit has M41 on the head (which I thought was for a diesel!) but thats what it says.
The engine I have bought I was told would be a straight drop swap for mine. But this one has E22 on it!!
Made I think in 1995 but I cant find a single thing about this engine anywhere or if its even suitable.
I hope I ant dropped a bollock 'n blown a good wedge of dosh. Anybody know anything to help me out?
thanks in advance

mmmmm..........dunno wot the hell is goin on then. I cant seriously see it being anything else other than E22. The numbers on the head in order are....

95 , 05, 22, 1 734 203 713, E22

The E22 mark is where M41 appears on my old head, but as ive just noticed, the 1 734 203 713 is the same on my old head.....the No's on the old head are,

97, 02, 18, 1 734 203 713, M41


Have I got something wrong in identifying the replacement eng?

oh the dropped a bollock thing is just a way of saying screwed up and spent a lot of money on a load of crap.

If the p/n is the same I wouldn't worry about it, but go to BMW and ask the parts guys for extra peace of mind. FWIW the number in the ETK is 11121716621 for both the 95 and 97

Sorry man the quote stays, it's just too damn funny. I've never seen an English sentence that made so little sense since I first learned basic English... and I've listened to rap.
