Lightbulb Sti to l swap

So I am stationed in Japan and I happen to own a
1999 STI TYPE R V5. It has a GDB R180 rear swap GDB Brembo brakes GDB 6 speed with DCCD GDB Spec C intercooler It's also an EJ207 and has tons of suspionsion stuff. I am thinking about parting it out when I leave and and doing an L swap or 2.5rs swap. Not sure where to start really. Anyone done anything like this?


Oh and it has a Power FC...

Well I am in Japan and not in the us because I am stationed here. I have a STI right now that is perfectly good an I also already own a 350Z in the states and I don't have another 25000 bucks for a new car. The point of the L swap is to bring all my JDM parts that are next to impossible to get in the states and out them in a USDM car.
