There is definitely a lot of clearance in the impreza engine bays. RB is WAY to heavy (650+lb). I'm starting off with the SR then maybe down the road I will pick up a LS1 or LS2. The LS's are even lighter than the SR in weight, but since I'm still a novice driver I didn't want to bombard myself with the power from a LS. I haven't put the R180 in yet, but that is coming up soon. We will lift the diff about 1 1/2" so the axles will be as straight as possible.
If you are really looking into it and you have the $ to spend please let me know.
Here are the pictures you asked for of the transmission mount (it is bowed on one side to fit the exhaust):
