Red face Ford 3.0 Questions/swap possibilities.

What's the difference between a Duratec 3.0 and our Vulcan 3.0? Was looking at Ebay for kicks and giggles and was curious. I'm not really familiar with Ford V6's, especially interchangeability of them so I wanted to ask if someone on here had any information. I've looked around on google and noone really has any specific details outside of someone on the Taurus forums detailing in his opinion the strengths and weaknesses between a Vulcan and Duratec.

If there's no major differences, and there's just as much fabrication work to be had as swapping a 3.0 to a 4.0L+ then I may stick with a newer generation 3.0 Duratec since they make a lot more power and get a lot better gas mileage (I'm only getting...on a good day 240Mi to a FULL tank of gas. Don't know why, can't figure it out...but then again I have a 10 mile round trip 5-6 days a week so that doesn't really get the best out of it...but even when I drove to Kentucky I got 240 on a full somethings up)
