V6 Mustang. Need your opinion guys

Hello everyone,
My brother is going to give me his 2008 V6 mustang, but I dont like it the way it is (stock). I think it needs a better sound system, new front chin spoiler, bigger rims and tires. As for performance I want to boost it to 350HP, so I think I need a supercharger and some other tweaks which I have no idea about. So I am wondering wouldn't be cheaper to sell it and put the money I have for those modifications in order to buy a 2008 mustang GT? Let me know what you think is the better option, and if anyone has an estimate of what it would cost to modify the things I listed in the V6 it would be great

Thanks alot

Just be happy you are getting a nice car for "NOTHING". If i were your brother, i would keep the car. Why do you want to butcher it or sell it? Be happy you might get it.

dont listen to the "trade it in guy" just buy a supercharger and you will be in the 300s. also new rear gears, tlok and exhaust.

@lildevil: seems like a lot of work and I am lazy.

@DennisG: Not for nothing! I had to be his brother for a lot of years and thats not easy.

@xroguex: A reasonable suggestion. I am thinking that the supercharger would cost around $3500 and the t-lok around $800 and gears around $200. That is a total of
$4500 without any modifications to the sound system or the exterior. Wouldn't it be better to sell the V6(has 20,000 miles on it) for 12000 or 13000(is this a reasonable price to sell?) and put the 4500 and get a GT?

@Givantsbluebaby: What can i say, iam ambitious

I would change wheels/tires, add dual exhaust, get cai and tune, stereo. I wouldn't waste money on supercharger. Like lil devil said it will never sound like a gt. But you would have a very nice ride (for free) with about $1500-$2000 into it. Now That being said, I could never change my gt for v6. Not because v6 isn't cool it (it is still a mustang), but that gt sound!!!! After I had to get rid of my 07 gt I spent the next 2 years trying to get over it. The first time I started my 06 gt and heard that engine/exhaust..2 months later I'm still smiling!!! Talk to your brother and feel him out. but if he seems offended, take the gift and make it yours.

If you want it to live, sell it and get a '05-09 GT. Simple mods can get you to 350 and it is still reliable. I wouldn't want to push the V-6 that far.

I bough all my mods from AM, and i can beat almost any modded gt (w/o a blower) on the tracks. I paid about 4k for everything. S/C 3.73 gear and t-loc, duel exhaust kit(not from AM) and some other little mods. I think it was a good investment, and i love the power. Also i have been told from numerous amount of people that my exhuast sounds about 10x's better then a GT. Most people think i have a GT, because of the duels. Im a V6 and a V8 killer!!!

Have you mentioned the thought of possibly selling the Car to your Brother and getting another? mabey he wont be too Happy with your Decision. I know if I gave you a Mustang and you sold it I'd be pissed and would feel Very Unappreciative.
But if he's all for it then I'd get a GT, if not I'd be Happy with My Newly Acquired Gift and Mod it, if it Blows then you did'nt lose too much, if it does'nt than you got a Nice Car Cheap

Yeah, talk to your brother. Get his input. Don't look a gift horse in the mouth. Bad blood gets started this way. He's giving you a perfectly good low mileage car which a lot of people would be very happy to have. He could have easily sold it himself and kept the money.
