My apologies in advance, I'm new to python

Say, I have a dictionary that looks like this:

record={'BAT': '14.4', 'USD': '24', 'DIF': '45', 'OAT': '16',
        'FF': '3.9', 'C3': '343', 'E4': '1157', 'C1': '339',
        'E6': '1182', 'RPM': '996', 'C6': '311', 'C5': '300',
        'C4': '349', 'CLD': '0', 'E5': '1148', 'C2': '329',
        'MAP': '15', 'OIL': '167', 'HP': '19', 'E1': '1137',
        'MARK': '', 'E3': '1163', 'TIME': '15:43:54',
        'E2': '1169'}

>From this dictionary I would like to create another dictionary calld
'egt') that has all of the keys that start with the letter 'E'.  In
otherwords it should look like this:

egt = {'E6': '1182','E1': '1137','E4': '1157','E5': '1148',
       'E2': '1169','E3': '1163'}

This should be pretty easy, but somehow with all my googling I've
not found a hint.

Thanks in advance
