I'm not the most.. Not even close, but I'll throw my 2 cents into the pile..

Take a close look at all fab work before you drive it away. Make sure it is going to hold together.

2 main areas on converns on the 12A swap are the engine cooling. The stock samurai radiator will not cool that motor! The other item is the method they connect the transmission to the t-case. The jack shaft should have 2 u-joints, not a single u-joint. They usually have to push the t-case back a bit to make room for this jack shaft, and still have room for a radiator up front.

if you are driving it home a long distance chack your fluids, belts, and all of the other normal details..

Good luck!
