START KNOCKING = BIG ENDING

From a tiny knock at start up, I'm now told it sounds like bottom end rod bearings.
I'm also told that, if it turns out to be the big ends, then I should look for a replacement engine????
Is a rebuild so difficult? Why even bother stripping the engine if I have to get a replacement? Where is the best place to source an engine for an 08 WRX STi UK?
Mine had only done 30K miles and hadn't been abused, how can I trust a subaru again?
