Yes, but you'll have to chase matching ECM, exhaust, and maybe tranny and axles too. Given age i wouldn't bother.

I would try your luck at www.car-part.com and see if anyone local has an engine for you. You might also try an impreza forum and see if there is a short block swap from other 2.0 models but keep your intake/sensors/etc? Just some thoughts.
