2001 Impreza 2.5rs

Impreza GC8 ej257 swap or ej257 shortblock swap

I've got a 01 2.5rs and just like lots of other rs owners I want more power. Well I don't have 10k in the bank for a full swap however I was searching through a couple of older posts one of which said that all EJ blocks and heads are interchangeable. If this is true would it be wiser to save and just by an ej257 or would it be smarter to find an inexpensive sti shortblock and replace the rs short block, then add on a custom turbo setup.
