Engine swap

I have a 2000 3.8L v6 ford mustang coupe, what should I do. Completely swap engines and put a v8 or keep the v6.

Ive seen some similar threads, and while i lack the know how to say, it seemed like most people said its easier and even cheaper to sell and buy a gt then swap...but im sure it depends on your situation

I would like to swap to a junkyard 4.6. How much would that cost?

Yeah I've been wondering if I should just get a new gt and just put a supercharger on it. Because by the time I got done fixing up my v6 it would be about the same.

It's either a rebuild, ported heads and a supercharger on my 3.8 or a V8 swap. But you have to upgrade a lot of stuff going from a sixxer to and 8 and if I'm going to swap, it's going to be go big or go home swap.
