Stealth and 3000GT Transmission Compatibility

I recently acquired a 1991 Dodge Stealth base model, and a 1999 3000GT. The 3000GT is just for parts and so far haven’t had any compatibility issues but haven’t transfered anything big yet. In fact the only big thing I need to transfer is the transmission. Does anyone know if the transmission from a 1999 3000GT will fit into a 1991 Dodge Stealth?
