Default Need help on motor ideas

Well guys have not been in the scene for quite sometime. Now I want to get back to modding so I need some advice about which motor route to go. I'm getting a GC8 pretty soon and I still own my 02 WRX. I want to do a complete interior swap over to the GC8 and part out whatever is left over on the bugeye. The question I have is what motor route would the majority of you guys pursue with a complete stock 00 GC8, 02 WRX and $4k? I just want to break the 300 hp mark and a cool daily. Let me know what you all think. Cheers

A wreck STI is $9k my 02 bugeye is gonna be difficult to sell because it has a salvage title from a very minor fender bender. Also the motor only has 35k miles on it.
