I suspect that latencies would strongly differentiate your 
traffic from regular tor exit node traffic.  Also, while
you may have a decent amount of tor bandwidth, how much of
that bandwidth can actually be used by an individual tor 
user?  Individual tor users going through at least 2 
other nodes before yours may still be severely BW limited
before  reaching your exit node.  If your traffic is not 
so BW limited, it will likely stand out again.

My quick $.02,
