Yup Glen is correct!  I 'm not sure of the logic behind the two piece How ever back in the late 70's early eightys they tried using them on the E6  and it didn't work out well they would break up! ! they gravitated back to single piece!

They came back to it in the e7 era and it has worked out this time! one advantage is no  steel ring inserts! the crown is already steel! The Mp engines have no skirt to speak of, only a small area of contact in alignment with the rod  below the piston head!

Later E9's had two piece pistons also. At least in Europe used in 560 hp Renaults.
