In summary I added: the biggest cargo bays, improved armor and shields (added a Shield Cell Bank), added a Point Defense Turret, better thrusters and FSD. Absolutely no weapons.

With modded thrusters it boosts quite Ok to outrun an interdiction, did it many times myself.
Meanwhile I've completely converted it to exploration doing most of the hauling with the Python and Anaconda now.

And I don't think you will be able to use the Shield Cell Bank. Try not to get shot in the first place and high wake out. Like this:
Once interdicted, submit immediately to save time and hull damage. Put four pips in ENG and two in SYS. Turn to face your attacker and boost, so that you get past them and they must turn around to shoot at you. Release chaff and boost again. Choose the closest star system from the navigation tab and jump out as soon as your FSD is ready for charging. Maybe chaff and boost once more until that time has come.
Since the T6 is a rather small ship, low-waking will usually be hindered by mass-lock. High-waking is not. But with the method I described you are safe even against human interdictors.

Low-wake is subject to mass-lock, check the MLF (mass lock factor) numbers on EDCD: Everything with the same or a higher mass-lock number will prevent you from going into low-wake, and the bigger the difference, the further away you need to be. Since a T6 is not that fast, this gives the attacker sufficient time to shoot you to bits.
On the build: A chaff launcher is a better option than a PD turret, but chaff only helps against missiles, gimballed weapons, and turreted weapons. Fixed weapons are immune to chaff. At that point, putting in a shield booster is the best use of the utility slot.
