I'm looking at a 2001 with 103k miles. Are these reliable? Is the 4cylinder engine enough power? I live in the mountains and regularly drive over passes. How hard is a sti swap?

I drive a 2003 2.5 RS impreza from work and college almost everyday, it is hilly around my area and I have no problems. It will be enough to get you up hills, you shouldnt have problems. For a 4 clyinder it has alot of pep and is surprisingly quick when you need it to be.
