Default GSR Swap?

I can get my hands on a GSR swap for around $1500-1800 should I first swap the engine and the worry about the exterior later or get the car resprayed, lowered, and some other things first. The paint is peeling on my front bumper and they car has some dings and dents in it.

Don't be all show and no go. I bet youll enjoy looking like your regular EG while acctually being powered by a DOHC B series engine. GSR first.

GSR, add to the sleeper look...blow away some mustangs, enjoy the look on their face after being blown away by a "peeled paint" EG...also, when your buddys or any one really ask you why you havent got you car painted yet...just say "well, i tried once, but it just goes so fast, the paint keeps falling off." lol....GSR, then some paint and suspension.

Plus if you do the swap first, you dont have to worry about the new body work getting f'd up if you do the swap last instead of first.
