There are only 2 types of EA82 water pumps. 1 is short, 1 is long. No A/C or Dealer A/C is the long. Factory A/C (GL-10s, etc.) are short.
Wiring will be different colors for alot of stuff, but alot of stuff is the same.
Brakes and hubs, steering, etc. will all be the same.

The Loyales were made "down market" (less well appointed) than their GL predecessors so as to encourage Legacy sales. Non-power mirrors (even on turbo Loyales) and cheaper interiors seem to be the rule. Oh, and if the Loyale is a turbo (unlikely), then the front axles will be different.
The "cracked" heads on the one engine were probably just the normal superficial between-the-valves cracks that nearly all EA82s get; the non-turbos seem to rarely have truly cracked heads.

Between the valve cracks seem to vary greatly. Take a look at the heads... superficial cracks will be visible, but not much separation sideways or vertically. These can be left alone or lightly peened closed. (If you have the heads resurfaced, the machinist is likely to be cranky about the presence of cracks.) If there is more of a gap between the crack edges, or the edges curl/slant upwards (into the combustion chamber), they might warrant testing. These deeper cracks can connect the intake and exhaust ports to each other and to the combustion chamber.
