Then install it in the car. Came with brand new webers and manifold in the box. Have all the 912 tins. What else would I need to make this work?

These kits are ok and many use them,however European Motorworks have better offering for all out performance and longevity,a T4 motor properly assembled with the right parts can yield good H.P.
Head replacement with the new casing go's a long to helping issues with old worn out ones which in most cases aren't worth repair,they benefit from a good flowing exhaust also,when you go large displacement you will need a front mounted oil cooler because the stock cooling system is somewhat marginal.
Not a cheap solution but if all is taken in to account they are a strong motor.
Good luck.
