Default How long do subaru manual transmissions last

I recently bought a 2002 subaru impreza TS wagon with 344k miles on it. I installed what is now it's third engine and a wheel bearing and got it running again. The manual transmission and all three differentials seem to be working just fine. I am wondering what the maximum lifespan (when not abused) seen on subaru manual transmissions of that era is . I am starting to think the car is on it's second transmission

Impossible question to answer. I had one trans last 250k. Body rusted out and engine/trans were still going fine. Had another at 235k when I pulled for a JDM swap. Was still working fine, I had just decided I wanted a 4.44 FD instead of 3.9. If I had kept either of them it would be impossible to guess how long they would last.

Generally lasts as good/ bad as you treat it, with some RNG factors. Difficult to determine. I had a truck whose trans went out at 60k, and I had an SUV whose trans was still running at 200K+.
