Subaru Stars Converting 02WRX to RWD...

Okay, so I'm sure this has been discussed in the past but just hear me out for a second. I have an early generation USDM 02 WRX, the gearboxes on them are notorious for breaking, hence the reason they went 1mm thicker in later versions. My question is, is there a basic DIY scenario to convert to RWD?

I love AWD don't get me wrong, but there is 150K on my WRX and I would really love to not have to replace a transmission anytime soon. I can only imagine the strain and stress converting to RWD would take off the tranny.

On top of this, my clutch is beginning to wear significantly, and will most likely need to be replaced in the future. I would like to upgrade to a nice stage 1 clutch and lighter flywheel while at the same time not putting more strain on my tranny.

Obviously, like any other man with a dream I would love to go full JDM EJ207 sti swap in the future, but for now just looking for some pointers.
