I did some research and it looks to me like the Taurus 3.0 is the exact engine, but you will have to swap the intake. I am looking at the same alternative. I called a buddy at Ford and the casting numbers are the same.

The Ford 500 cars have the exact same engine as well. That is what the second engine came out of that Geico's supply dept. sent me. Too bad it only lasted 2 weeks though.
