Vauxhall Astra used the same engine, you might have more luck looking in that direction.

Take the opportunity to re engine with something else that engine was pants, a small yanmar would be a good option.
The astra engine was the same block & head & some ancillaries but different pistons turbo manifolds etc.
The 3.0 petrol mercruiser is a better option than the 1.7

I have thought about re powering with a different engine as ive seen some stories about these engines.

What engine would be the easiest swap?

3.0 petrol mercruiser is the easiest option & probably the cheapest
