Handle better... where? Autox? Track? Gravel?

The STi has two huge handling advantages over other Imprezas from the factory:

-Tires
-Diffs

The tires one is easy to fix. Takeoff RE070's are cheap and plentiful.

The diffs, not so easy.

Basically, any suspension you end up with is a tradeoff of some kind, with ride quality, responsiveness, ride height, suspension independence, suspension travel, etc etc all being factors.

If you want your car to handle well here is a decent starting place:

Short answer: driver, tires, alignment, suspension mods, in that order

But in order to give you better advice we need things like, your budget, your tolerance for iffy ride quality, what you use the car for, etc etc.
