Engine of unknown origin

So when I purchased my car the PO also included an engine. Supposedly it was a 2.8 of some variety. With the help of Chris Bennet we are slowing uncovering what this engine really is. I'd like to post what we have discovered so far and ask for you opinions, observations or just general comments. My plan is to use this engine in my RSR wannabe, which we be used primarily as a summer street car. Maybe a couple of DE events, but no serious track useage.

case - 1970 E
stroke - 66mm
bore - 90mm Mahle RS
heads - 2.4 heads with 35mm exhaust bore and 38mm intake bore

cam - a "warm street cam based on the following measurements taken at 0.1mm
0 deg Both valves closed, crank at TDC
123 deg Exhaust Opens
322 deg Intake Opens
386 deg Exhaust Closes
604 deg Intake Closes

Single plug ignition

Induction - currently none, plan is to use a set of Weber/PMO 40s


Thoughts?
