With that setup, the biggest question you should be asking is which pistons you want. A factory EJ257 would probably work fine even. If you want to push the car to limits, possibly run water or alchy injection,get the forged pistons. My setup is pretty similar, and forged pistons is all I'm going with.

World One is selling built motors, and their stage 2 is exactly that. EJ257 with forged pistons at a great price. WWW.Subarumotors.net

One thing you might consider in your build is heads too. Most people who do shortblock swaps in WRX's find the WRX heads/cams too restrictive. If you get your heads p&p'd, and get STI cams, you'll get more power for your setup. I chose to go with full STI heads and swapping my utec for a Hydra, since the Hydra has AVCS control. Something to consider too since you could sell your WRX longblock to help with the cost.

I figured out that if I pay for the USDM heads (roughly $1500-$2000 for a good set), my old engine would have a much better re-sale value. EJ205 shortblocks are worht $300 at best. The ECU's aren't worth much either. You might find a RS or Legacy guy who's willing to part all the pieces together, but unlikely. If you move to a built EJ257 shortblock, USDM STI heads, and a Hydra, you could sell your old complete engine with ECU and UTEC for at least $2500, recouping much of your cost. In fact, you might try to buy a used WRX tranny case and have your PPG's installed in those. Most Legacy and RS owners told me they'd pay well over $4,000 for a complete WRX engine with ECU and tranny. For people who are replacing simply for the performance, this saves us a LOT of money. Plus anybody who's driven a hybrid vs a full sti engine will tell you the AVCS is nice. Helps with a smoother power band and spooling your turbo faster.

I tried to start a thread about this a while ago, and nobody could seem to grasp what I was talking about. I guess the reason why this doesn't work for most people is upfront cost and the fact that most people replace their shortblock because it's blown, and they need a cheap replacement.
