Can someone recommend a cost effective/reliable engine to put into 05′ Subaru Legacy Turbo Wagon?

I have an opportunity to buy an 05′ Subaru Legacy Turbo Wagon for $800, the car is very clean and straight body. I was wondering what would be a good engine to drop in it, and what my budget should be for the swap.

Things to consider:

  • I’ve never done major car maintenance, unless you consider replacing drum breaks on a 2004 Corolla major maintenance.
  • Trying to do this as frugally as possible, without sacrificing too much on viability of the engine swap and longevity with proper maintenance
