Default Engines that will fit?

As I mentioned in a previous post I am getting a 99 35th Anni that is in great shape. Its got the V6 and I plan to use it as a daily driver for now. At some point in the future I plan to swap it for a V8. I will, over time, obtain the various parts to build a complete engine. A block here, heads there, etc...
My question is this, what engine/s will fit in the 99 as a straight swap?
I've seen several complete engines, blocks, and various other parts listed on Craigslist, (I'm just LOOKING at this point and won't be buying anything for a while), but i want to make sure I have an idea on what will actually fit.
Of course I also know that at some point an 8.8 will be in the works but that's a whole 'nother thread!

Everyone in this section loves the v6 and will tell you to keep it. I'd go with a 32v 4.6 or a 32v 5.4. The swap isnt bad at all to do. Here is some great info. The first one is what you will need for a v8 swap but it is done with a 2v. The second is for a 4v motor swap.

Any swap that I do would be a long time down the road, probably a year or more.
Given that, what things should I keep an eye out for to beef up the V6? It has less than 80k miles on it so it's got plenty of life left and has not been driven hard at all. It was owned by a nun and my bro in law who has had it parked for probably a year if not longer.

they make a k member that will allow you to bolt in a 351W if you get a 4 bolt main block you can put some real power to it. since the 302 and the 351 share the same motor mounts a k member from a 94 or 95 gt or a tubular for a 94 or 95 gt you can fit it in there.

Any idea what year that would be or are all 351W 4 bolt? The reason I ask is that I did see a 351 on Craigslist last night. Of course I can't get it now but it would be good to know for furture reference.

If you wanna waste the time.... er, I mean take the time to swap the V8, go big or go home. 5.4L DOHC swap, turbo it and call it a day.
