It won't make it run faster. Honestly if you update firmware on a 3G it will slow it down. I wouldn't worry about updating fw on a 3G. But if you do decide to do so just update it through iTunes to the most recent. 3G phones can only be updated to 4.2.1 on iTunes and that baseband is unlikable and jailbreakable.

Honestly man, the screen Change for the iPhone 4 sucks. The back however is very easy to change, I would just buy a white back since it is only 10-15$ and will take only a few minutes to install, not to mention most people pay more for a white iPhone versus a black.
Also when buying an iPhone 4 screen make sure the digitizer Is also included. Unlike the 3G and 3GS the LCD and Digitizer are glued together, I haven't found a single person to successfully get them apart so you'll want to buy them as a set.

You will need the LCD/digitizer combo in black. As well as a black button+ribbon. You can do the swap without the ribbon but without adhesive I wouldn't recommend it. If I were you I would Just buy the white back bro, they are cheap, install process is removing 2 screws, and an all white iPhone 4 goes for more than a black one does.

But if you only change the back to white, then you have two color tone... Black & White.
