4-Speed Auto Availability

I read in someone's thread that in 1987 Subaru introduced the electronic 4 speed automatic transmission.I have an 87 GL-10 Turbowagon. Is it an easy swap-out with the 3-speed auto? This would take into consideration that I could find one. Since we've raised the speed limit from 55 to 70+, the engine runs in a higher RPM range than I would like. I'd like to have my soob for 300,000+ miles, like I did with my 88 turbo wagon, but it was a 5-speed (which I miss alot). Any advice out there?
Not much help on the auto side of things, but if you are swapping transmissions, and missing the 5-speed...
It just seems silly to even consider the automatic.

IIRC, my 3AT turbowagon sat at just above 4k at 70mph.. perfectly acceptable RPM range for a decently maintianed EA82.
