Simply, No way. It would be screaming expensive.

Not really dude, not without spending many times the value of the car on custom work. I mean with enough mad cash, anything is possible but certainly to realist. So like where would the drive shaft go , there is no tranny hump in FWD cars.

FWD is great in the winter, so why do you want RWD for winter ???

You are doing it wrong for 2 reasons:

1) Yes, its 100% possible to convert it to RWD, cost? well... $20,000 USD will do the trick.

2) RWD is AWFUL compared with FWD in winter, so your request makes no sense, AWD is better tough,

You can use a car performance simulator[1] to see what is the effect of different traction systems on the same scenario to learn more about how they behave.

Possible. Let's assume money isn't an issue - both configurations have been done before.

The Braille Integra had fitted the CRV 4wd system which meant that it was mostly FWD and only AWD when needed (lost of traction). The car was able to convert between RWD (removing front axles), FWD (disable rear pumps) and 4WD (always-on pumps) with some modifications. More info on this is posted below.

Other completed projects include the mid-engine, RWD H22a setup and a few with an S2000 motor and modified drivetrain. All of which requires a ton of fabrication, know-how and time (not to mention money).
