The only thing i'd be worried about is the wiring- Ford did quite a few changes in that department from 2004+. I would say yes to physically, though. Maybe somebody has a wiring schematic for 2003 vs. a 2007 3.0L. Anyways, perfect opportunity to add bolt on goodies! Headers, pullies, better plug wires, etc.

The wiring is gonna be crazy different. Ford did 2 major wiring changes, one in 04 and another in 07.

the block and heads should be the same, you might have to use the intake and everything else from your truck.

i really don't know much about the 3.0
