My point: it's cheaper to sell your V6 stang and buy a V8 stang than it is to do a swap.
yep! unless you already have a ton of money in it, it will always be cheaper the mod the 6 than to drop in an 8.

Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion. Jer 22:13, 15-17
