They both bolt right up but youd have to change wiring.

THe 2.2L N/A is a completely different block being opendeck and all.
the 2.2L engine up to/through 95 is one animal (non-interference head), the one after that is different (interference head) - if you don't believe me look here http://www.finleyweb...ault.asp?id=142 - the only difference between turbo and N/A are the pistons used - EJ blocks are all very similar - they just have different sized holes in them for the cylinders for different displacements!! - the heads are where the real differences lie - you are upgrading your impreza by turboing it and getting more power, but you are also getting a non-interference design, so if you break a timing belt, you just put another in it - that is probably where you are increasing your reliability the most
The 2.5L engine is the one which changed in the said way - big difference
that said, if you want more power, you can probably fit any EJ series engine under your hood - most have very similar/same external physical dimensions
