    When you replace the radiator make sure it's entirely aluminum. Not sure about the 94's but the newer Impreza's rads have plastic end caps that are known to fail.

    Honestly the pump and timing belt are kinduva PITA. Last set I changed on a bugeye took 2 hours, but I have a full shop with air tools. It is cheap insurance.

    I like to know things are done right, and you bought a used car, so in your case personally, I would change:

    1. The radiator with something like a Koyo Aluminum or cxracing aluminum.
    2. Thermostat and gasket.
    3. Flush the whole coolant system, and use subaru coolant.
    4. The timing belt if it wasn't done at time of install (who know how many miles are on the motor)
    5. Water pump while I'm changing the T-belt.
    6. Oil and filter
    7. Spark Plugs.
    8. Transmission Fluid.
    9. Radiator cap (may have blown the burst disc or could be leaky or corroded if original).
    10. Rear diff fluid.
    11. Radiator hoses.
    12. Flush the brake fluid (supposed to every year)
    13. Inspect brake system.
    14. Inspect CV joints.
