Default 2009 Impreza 2.5i Conversion wrx engine swap?

Hey all,

I am new to nasioc and a proud new owner of the 2009 impreza. I was actually in the market for a new Wrx but I just did not have the mooolah to afford one :P. I am mostly trying to go for performance and have been reading and looking around about how to do work on my impreza. Some have suggested to wait and trade it in but the only issues I have with that is being able to find a nice in good shape wrx . Also the fact that I drove this car off the lot with 12 miles . Some have also said to drop a wrx engine into it since that engine is already turboed and im sure that mounting that engine into it would be fairly identical? Would that make more sense than just boosting the current engine or are they two different motors? Sorry for all the newbie questions im still reading and learning a little more about them but any help, opinions, suggestions about how to go about it would be greatly appreciated!

also wanted to add it: I could swap like a 08 or 07 motor ?
