THE 2001 FORESTER TZ1A3ZC2AA-P8

you can use any trans from a 96 - 98 2.5L, outback, GT, LSi or forester. if you use a GT or LSi your speedo may be off a little.
you can find good parts at www.car-part.com. you will have to search each year and model separately. sort by distance to see what is close to home first and then by price just to see if there is a deal somewhare. shipping will cost about $150 so add that to any far away trans price.
note, just so you know: a 95 - 99 legacy / impreza (2.2L) trans will work but you will need to swap in the matching rear diff as well. and this will change your power curve / fuel economy.

Doesn't exist. As said foresters came much later
yes and no. Need correct year or model and auto or manual.

options depend if that's a manual or auto.
Manual - yes they probably can be swapped will have final drive ratio differences and driveshaft length differences can be worked around.
If it's an auto then no it won't work, not at least in normal terms most people would find acceptable.
