Locate the 2.5 '99 engine anything else is a headache to change over, with so many Subaru engine woes.. maybe some Engine change EXPERT for Subaru's can assist you. As every Subaru forum has a lot of arguable engine swap opinions, as whether harnesses and computers are compatible from engine to engine and which years "work".

Older flawed DOHC (in which case, don't bother) or newer SOHC (be sure to replace HGs during swap-in)?
