Any 2000-2002 9-3 T7 engine will work, or any 2003 convertible engine, of course. Unfortunately they're all sludge monsters. The 9-3 didn't use the old 4-cylinder engine long enough to get the permanent PCV and sludge fix that the 9-5 got in 2004, so just look for one that has PCV update #6, if you can.
What exactly is wrong with yours that requires a complete replacement? Rod knock, piston slap, or something else about that serious?
