90 Legacy 5speed tranny into 01 Impreza?

I have a 2001 Impreza (not RS) that has a 5 speed transmission that has long since surpassed its service life. I have a 5 speed transmission from a 1990 Legacy wagon that I'd like to put in the car. I know this will enrage alot of you... turning an AWD into a FWD, but I just need transportation and can't afford $900 for a used AWD tranny. Will the 1990 transmission bolt in? If it won't what FWD transmissions will? (the rear end is pretty messed up from a wreck though the car would drive perfectly as FWD)

1990 was a wierd year for Legacy..some used big inner axle stubs, some used small . You may have to buy new CVs to fit the trans. I believe you will need the shifter and possibly the rear mount. Most 90 Legacys will have 200k on the odo..or more. It can be done though.
