Well, Jay, it's up to you.

At this point in time, the swapped ti is NOT a replacement for the M3, as a used M3 can be had for less than a used ti.

As I did, you have to do the swap for the love of the car, not to save a few bucks off the price of an M3, and CERTAINLY not to try and re-sell the car for a profit. That trick never works with most cars, and not these in particular.

So, I cannot answer your question for you. I can say that the $4,900.00 you get for your second ti will quickly be consumed doing a swap, and I'd like to add that I think it is a shame to convert a real ClubSport ti with so many 1996+ sport models out there. If my car was a 1995 ClubSport, I would not have done the swap- I would have waited and got a second car to swap...
