Default Which Wagon to use

OK folks here is the deal, I am looking to replace my mortaly injured 98 RS with a wagon. With the intentions of making it a turbo charged daily driver, I know its been done BUT I have a thing for someones Yellow STi ver6 and I want my own...or at least come as cose as i can. Bearing in mind that I have a spare 98 EJ25 with Cobb parts en route (sorta) what body should I use. The only requirements are that it has to be a wagon, and I'm not a fan of the two toned outback wagons. So i figure it'd be a 96-98. 99 and up being too costly. So the bottom line is......which body style can i get away with as being the best platform from my wagon. 96 is cheaper, but I don't know if all the aftermarket goodies will fit it. While a 98 has better aftermarket support, but costs more. Keep in mind that the less I have to pay a month for financing, the more i can spend on goodies.

Everyone, feel free to make comments or critiques.

Stu: any year will work, just make sure you pick up a 2.2L AWD wagon. The 1.8L versions have smaller fuel tanks and smaller drivetrain components in some places. You'll save a lot of hassle by avoiding swapping out a lot of parts. If you can find one with rear disc brakes, that will be ideal. The difference between the years would be the hood, headlamps, and interior.

If you're one of those "Dress Up and Style" people, make sure you check out one example of each year to make sure you're okay with the interior, especially the seat fabric and center console.
