The V6 uses a different transmission (T-5 in the V6, T-45 in the GTs) and the bellhousing does not match up.
Might as well look into getting yourself a TR-3650, the transmission from late '01-04 GTs. They're more robust than the T-45s that originally came in early 4.6 cars. The only thing is you'll need to get ahold of a mechanical speed sensor.

It literally will not bolt up to your motor unless you waste a couple hundred dollars on an aftermarket bellhousing. It just isn't worth the effort and extra money to make it work. What you'd spend on the bellhousing is probably more than the extra cash needed to get the proper transmission.

Take the pedals, the shifter surround, even the shifter if you're going with a T-45. That's about all you can use.

There's no difference between V6 and V8 pedals. Might as well pick them up now while you have the chance and a source. Same goes for the interior shifter trim.

You need a flywheel, clutch, transmission, shifter, cable, and driveshaft. Might need a different crossmember as well, but I'm not 100% sure of that. Trans mount is specific for 96-98 cars with the T-45 as well, so you'll need one of those too.
I honestly don't know what would be needed when it comes to the wiring/ECU. You may need some kind of adapter for the speedometer, I don't know if the AOD uses the same type of sender that the T-45 does.
