Nope, wont work, the V6 uses a T5, and you need a T45 which is almost a T5 except that it has an integral bellhousing with a different bolt pattern, sorry.

Sure about that?? I thought the sixxer (an '02 in this case) used the same TR3650 as the GT. And also, the T5 was replaced with the T45 beginning in 1996 right??

So far as I have always been aware, the same trans (for both auto and manual) was used by Ford regardless of the engine mounted in front of it; the only exception to that being the 03/04 Cobra's 6 speed which was exclusive to that model. The T5 was phased out along with the 302 after 1995, replaced by the T45; which lasted until mid-2001 when they started using the 3650.

The bolt pattern on the V6 is not the same as the modular 4.6 V8, thats why they still used the T5.

100% sure.

You can check at the Tag on the door, right lower corner under "TR", first digit would be a "5"

I started Googling when I saw this thread because I thought the V6 used the T45, too.
But nope... I found it had the T5, although there is a bit of controversy about it.
