So my engine finally went out on me and I’m thinking of doing an engine swap. I have no real goals in a power upgrade, maybe around 350 but lower is fine. What would all need done to make this possible? And is it worth it?

No.

The STI engine from that generation has an additional camshaft control that you would need to contend with and for what? The internals are nearly identical and the block IS the same.

Is there another generation that would work better? Or should I just stick to rebuilding the engine I have?

Like XJ says, OEM shortblock or even longblock. What failed?

You're going to have to give us more info than that. Was there damage to the heads?
I don’t believe there was. Sorry I don’t have the most information, I’ve been pretty stressed considering it blew up 500 miles from where I needed to go. I’ll need to get some more details
