Just for information for future reference since it's a bit of an obscure engine.
What I have is a 2 liter short deck motor called UQ. Originally found in South American market Quantum and Santana 2000's.
Hydro big valve head, bubble block, low compression (8.7:1), 3a style dizzy, oil squirters. Originally equipped with a version of motronic and rated at 116hp/120 torks (that seems to be the common consensus).

Here are the markings.


and I even have the original oil cap

Just for future reference if any else has one of these
