The 912E engine or, more correct, the VW type 4 engine is completely different from the early 912 engine. I prefer the early 912 engine, both working on it as well as driving with it. The early Porsche 912, with original carburated engine, drives with more spirit and character than the heavier 912E with original injected engine. Many of these type 4 engines have been modified to carbs, which are very hard to perfectly adapt to these engines. I've had a 914 with carbs and never got it running as perfect as I wanted.

In addition to what Jaems wrote: take your time and wait until you can buy the 912 you can afford and start with a more or less complete car. Don't buy an engine you first have to rebuild without any experience on this matter.
