Can someone tell me if the engine from a 2007 Wr450  will fit in a 2006 model Wr450?

I don't think it will, 06 has oil in the frame and 07 keeps it in the engine.

Yes I agree, but I want to put the 07 motor in the 06 frame. We ended up with 07 cases for our 06 bike. So we are in a bit of a delema.

If the oil is kept in the 07 then it shouldn't matter except for the mounting....
Don't take my advice, I've got an 06
