Gt swap.

Alright guys I want to start off by saying hello, I'm new to this app, aha with that being said I have a serious question and would like a good opinion from an experienced enthusiast/ car guy, I recently bought a 01 v6 mustang with approximately 216,000 for $1600. I was thinking about doing a 4.6 swap and was wondering if that would be pointless due to the mileage?

Its not pointless due to the mileage, its pointless due to not being cost effective. You need pretty much everything from a GT donor car. It will be cheaper and a lot less work if you sell what you have and buy a GT.

If you get a cheap donor and have the knowledge do it cheaper than buying a gt also you will pround of it more than just saying bought a gt I'm about to start mine just trying to work out some details

You paid 1600 for the v6 with 216k miles. If the used mustang market by you is like it is by me then you can pick up a 94-95 5.0 or a non PI 4.6 for 2-3k with less miles. Obviously these wont be perfect cars but they can be tuned up pretty cheap plus you have a better platform to start with should you choose to mod.

Point being if you really want a v8 then I'd save some cash for one or sell the six and upgrade. As said there's way more to a v6 to v8 swap than one expects. It's safe to say you'd be over that previously mentioned 2-3k mark to have solid running swapped car unless you have some real good connections and a fully tooled shop at your disposal.

Or it'll become a great big pain in the *** when he realizes its the motor and the trans and the fuel system and wiring and the labor involved etc...

Yes, cause that would be much easier lol

Definitely see more power vs a 2v though, that's the sad part.
