I would think that was rather low for a rebuilt engine? A proper rebuild should put it back to new, and if I understand you correctly, you have built it to HC spec (2.2/104+107/10.5:1), which in stock form was 180BHP. A driveline loss of close to 70hp would surely make gearbox, diff or rear brakes glow in the dark.

But... It doesn't really matter what the numbers say if it feels right!

BTW: I think that ridiculously rich spot around 3k5 can be ironed out by altering the float levels. <heresy warning>I don't have first hand experience, but I think I remember someone saying that lowering the float level will delay the tip in of the main jets, since they seem to come online while the idles/emulsion tubes are still giving enough juice.</heresy warning>
