Used engine or trouble shoot....???

BTW, I am not up on the codes here. Is an ea82 the OHC 1.8?

That's kind of a tough question. With overheating, damage can be mild to catasrophic. Is the ONLY problem that it won't idle, or has it lost power or started using coolant or oil, or mixing the two? If it's just the idle problem, I would hold onto that engine. Then again, depending on where you live, you might be able to locate a good-running replacement for a few hundred bucks, which might be easier and cheaper.
To answer your engine code query:
EA81: 1.8L OHV (the engine in your brat, assuming it wasn't swapped for something else. Actually, if your brat is an early one, you could have an EA71 OHV 1.6L).
EA82: 1.8L OHC
EJ18/EJ20/EJ22/EJ25....: Numbers corresponding with displacement in liters, OHC (some are DOHC), which are in Legacy, Impreza, Forester.

If you do pull the heads, then have them milled (should be around $30 a head), and use new Fel-Pro head gaskets. They are only $14 brand new - don't buy the cheap ebay gaskets - you will be dissapointed. Plus the Fel-Pro's don't require retorqueing. Do a compression test to make sure your gaskets ARE bad before you pull the heads.
Rebuild the Hitachi, and make sure you find ALL the vacuum leaks. This will cure your idle problem I should think.
