It looks like someone turbocharged your 2007 supercharged SS. It may be the original 2.0.
I find it odd the seller didn't tell you what it was.

thatís what I was thinking. Maybe itís the original 2.0 supercharge motor with a turbo. But upon looking at the motors that come out with them it seems slightly different such as coil pack positions

The yellow Junk Yard paint pen markings are not a good sign that it's still OEM.

Your only hope since the valve cover id tag is gone is there might be an id stamped into the side of the block over by the oil filter housing. Should be a flat machined surface below the housing.

To me it looks to the Saab 9-3 engine, looking at the connectors for the coil packs thats what they tend to use

Are you on the rgv ecotecs page on face book? If not look for it and join, members on there know about this car and may lead you in the right direction.

That ground strap looks sketchy as hell, and also isn't in that location on the LSJ
