Default 2008 2.5i engine swap possibilities??

I'm just bouncing the idea around of doing an engine swap. If I wanted to put in an sti or Wrx engine in mine what year would I need to look for? Any help would be much appreciated.

Doing an engine swap on a 2 year old car? At least drive it until the warranty is done

You would be better off just buying a 2008 WRX or STi. Less hassel, quicker, and problemly cheaper too.

^^^This haha. less problems means problemly cheaper. too many things to go wrong, like I am finding out with my 08, most mods that you do your one of the first to be doing it, so there are less people that know what they are doing and less people to help.
