^ Dave, you're close but not really
v3/4 were called EJ20G or EJ20K and v5/6 are EJ205 or EJ207 depending on WRX or STi trim (and which WRX among those)

none of the EJ20K were closed deck, all v3-6 models were open deck.
none of the v1-6 were semi closed, that started with v7 (bugeye STi EJ207)
only some of the v1/2 EJ20G were closed deck, usually externally indicated by the ribs on the starter bump or on the top of the case halves

anyways back to OP's question, you should really do a smoke test or you could get the car idling and then spray tiny squirts of brake/carb cleaner around the engine bay at all the lines/hoses/connections to see if you observe any change in idle, that usually means you have a leak.
"1998" could be v4 or v5 depending... but v5/6 are similar to each other and v3/4 are similar to each other.
OP you should post a picture of your engine bay

Here are some engine bay shots of the v5/6 WRX/STi EJ205/EJ207 if that helps:
