There are a few internal changes, as well as the heads, and few misc other stuff. You could swap it in, but you'll need a new exhaust manifold and probably need to tweak a few other things.
I'd probably pass on getting the motor.

I have a secret dream to find one and stick it in my Impreza...

Between pre '94 and post '95 there are a bunch of different sensor connections. you'd be safe to take your manifold and TB off your engine, do the same with the donor engine, drop it in, and bolt your stuff back on.

I'll inspect the engine a little closer. It's still in the car, so I can get the exhaust manifold, etc. What's the story on boring out a Subaru block? Are there oversized pistons out there for a bigger bore cylinder, or are the cylinder walls too thin for a bore? This whole Subaru 4 cylinder design fascinates me and it'd be fun to rip one apart. :cool:
I really don't know why the car got to the salvage yard in the first place--the body is straight w/ only some Wal-Mart parking lot type damage to it and it was a 4WD Legacy wagon, 5-speed. Course now the rear end has been stripped, wheels all gone, dash ripped apart to snag the radio, and the interior goes to crap once a car hits the salvage yard. If I had the garage space, though, I'd consider buying it as a restoration...
