Full 3.0 or 3.0 Hybrid?

Hello guys!

Right now i am in process of buying 2004 Escape with 3.0 to swap it in my mondeo mk2 ST200. I always liked the idea of 3.0 hybrid but found some forums, where ppl were against it with the point that full 3.0 is making more power than hybrid so hybrid is pointelss.
So right now i am little bit confused. I always thought that 3.0 hybrid has bigger compresion so it will make more power? Or am i wrong and i am missing something? Would it be better to just match intake from 2.5 to 3.0 and be done with it or am i wrong even with that asumption? I have two 2.5 engines (normal 2.5 and ST200 2.5) and will have 3.0 from escape. What is the best way right now?
