Do I have a 962 engine case?

I started setting up my 3.0L engine rebuild project to recase my 3.0L track engine and grabbed one of my unstamped 3.0/3.2L engine cases that I got long ago from a guy who worked on a Porsche IMSA team and noticed some odd things that made me wonder if the case is a 962 case:
1. No engine serial number
2. no engine type number
3. many of the fasteners appear to be titanium
4. O ring'd cylinder bores
5. Long/large piston squirters.
6. "930.101.103.6R" / "930.101.104.5R" case number

Is there some definitive way to identify it?

Did the 962 use gear driven cams like the 956 or did they simply plug a 911 engine in with a giant turbo to meet IMSA's rules?

That case has been boattailed and relieved as well.

Looks like a 962 (air-cooled) case to me.

Steve is spot on. Its an air cooled case. Easy to identify. Check the #7 main web. Its common for these cases to crack there. No number could mean it was an Andial case "built" here in the US.

Case had many cracks in it so it was scrapped a year ago.
