I want to upgrade my macbook pro 17 early 2009 by replacing old logic board with logic board of macbook pro 17 mid 2009 (3.06). Is it compatible with newer one?

macbook pro, Mac OS X (10.6.3)

    I can't find a definitive answer to this question, though my suspicion is that it may be compatible. But if it is, you'd be paying a very large amount of money for a speed upgrade of almost negligible significance. (2.66GHz or 2.93GHz to 3.06GHz). At most that's a 15% improvement — barely perceptible, if perceptible at all, in day-to-day use.

    It would probably make more sense to sell your current MBP and buy a new one.
