Not to be argumentative, but Ill say again. "there is no substitute for cubic inches, except cubic money" A V6 is not a V8. It will never feel or sound like one either, no matter how much money, or modifications you pour into it.

The 3.7 liter Mustang is a great car. But if you are hard set on competing with V8's, you might well be advised to save your money and get what you are looking for.
I drive both. And both are fabulous. The 3.7 V6,is an awesome little powerplant. But it will never rival the 5.0 regardless of what you might read , or hear.
Again, no intention to provoke argument. But it is , what it is .At least, in the real world.

I would suggest to anyone who feels that there are no significant differences between a 3.7, and a 5.0, to drive each of them. Then return to the internet forums to speculate.
