By the time you rebuild a type 4; fit it in the car with the 912E sheet metal; you will have as much in the it as if you rebuild the 912.

The main problem rebuilding a 912 engine is the parts, finding them, mainly quality German bearings, both mains and rods in the right size.

The body rust will be the biggest problem you will have; unless you purchase one that already has been done. If you find one of those the engine will probably have already, also, been done.

You need to take an experience early 912 Porsche owner with you when you are going to buy. They will know or should know and can point out where the bad rust points are hidden. Someone like Otto, here.
