Default 57 beetle, just got ej20t jdm motor off ebay, have q's

Go easy on me as this is my first post..........

I just got a EJ20t off ebay that will be going into my oval beetle and I have a couple questions:

1. Is the engine I got closed or open deck? I cant find a definitive answer.

2. How much boost could I be comfortable running through it (I have an AEM standalone that will run it)

3. What is stock c/r and are the rods/pistons/crank forged?

I have a Porsche G50 5spd for the project, 19" wheels and I'm hoping for 3-350 hp with stock internals, is this realistic?

I was gonna post a pic, looks like I cant yet.......

Engine came today. I'm guessing the tag you needed the info off was about 3/4" x 3 3/4"? Sticky part is still there but the top layer of the sticker is torn off

Anything else that can ID it? It had these numbers on the block:

6215
EJ20
29BB (on both case halves)
22212

Turbo on it is an IHI RHB52 with these markings:
42E on center section
K1,B52X, and 15-H on exhaust housing

Any ideas other than pulling a head off?

next to the rhb52 there will be VF-xx
also count the blades on the turbine side of the turbo
the engine code is on a white sticker (often falls off) on the timing belt cover

um i am in the dark why pull the valve cover?
