putting a v8 in a v6?

So i have a 2014 v6 mustang automatic and i was just thinking what would be the best route to go in the future so i can start saving lol. I needed to get a guesstimate how much it would cost to get the v8 motor and all other stuff into my v6 body. Or/and if it would just be better to end up trading in the v6 towards a new v8... if it matters i wouldn't be doing this for like 3-4 years.

I could have gotten the v8 but being only 21 i didn't really trust myself with all that power lol.

Honestly with the prices of that motor, I would just trade what you have in towards one. Do mostly cosmetic mods that you can transfer to the gt and keep all stock parts.

Wouldnt be worth it imo. I say do a few mods, save your money, and in the 3-4 years sell this one and you'll be able to have a huge down payment for a gt or even better.

The cost to do a motor, tranny, drive shaft, all the lines am hoses, new wiring and ecu programming..... Looking at a cool 20-25,000 at the current prices and at all brand new. Find a wrecked GT if possible.

When my motor blows I'm just putting another 3.7 in it. Cheaper, and everything still hooks up

The idea of having the v8 in the v6's body sounds cool and all but doing the math it seems like an expensive headache just to go from 305hp to 416hp. You can spend the cost of the engine alone and get a supercharger for your six, and be flying with 450+ hp and better gas mileage than the GT.

Not really better bad mpg when pushing the same power. That boost will require more fuel too
