any engine go in?

hi. just got myself an rb5 and at the moment it is running great but is a little rattely. as a mechanic and engine builder i fancy building another fresh engine up to put in but being new to the impreza i don't know what engine to look for. do all the later engines go in ok or does it it have to be the same as the existing one? is it worth having a closed deck block or what. i will be changing the turbo in the future and having it remapped again for a bit more power. me mechanical knowledge is vast but when it comes to specifics on the impreza treat me as a complete newbe.

any help would be great!

not planning on going crazy. be nice to have the best of what is readily available at a reasonable price. not really wanting anything with major issues. just something for a straight forward rebuild. if i can get something that does not need work even better.
