That's a good match and should make things easy. The wiring harness should plug right in but you need to retain all the V8 engine controls. (ECM and MAP sensor) On the same note, use the Oil pressure sending unit and the water temperature sending units out of your V6 to keep your gauges reading correctly.

Did you encounter any problems to get it fit right? Exhaust clearance, What kind off Exhaust-manifolds did you use?
