I'm a bit of a neat freak, Anyway
I've got a bad transmission (though well taken care of, gone at past 200,000) going to be replacing that soon as I can, and the engine will probably be next but we'll try and keep that clean...
so any wise words are Very welcome, I'd like to try and keep this thing as clean and smooth as I can....

Sounds like you've got an auto, correct?
You can swap in a manual with a little wiring and some pedal swapping.
Or a replacement auto can be put directly in, no rewiring required.
Your engine is non-interference, so if it busts a timing belt or a pulley, you're good
Also, unless you know it has been done recently, I would recommend changing the timing pulleys and the belt and possibly the water pump.
That will ensure another 60k miles of no worry driving.
At least for the engine timing :-p

Welcome to the USMB, if you are a neat freak I suggest you stay away from any thread with the word mud in it, could be hard on you...

Can you describe what happens if you put it into 3rd while the engine is running, and then let out the clutch?
PS:If you need any body replacement panels, pretty much any Impreza from 93-02 or 03 will match up without issue.

I do know while the engine is running, when you put the clutch in all the way it makes a kind of.. brushing? sound...
and that body hint is Awesome I like that, except you Cannot find subarus in junk yards.. >.< course that's probly a good sign.. considering you could probly Build an american car out of a junk yard..
