The supposed "drop-ins" really only match the A-4 footprint. They are all taller and will require a new, and larger, exhaust system. I replaced the A-4 in my Tartan 30 and I needed a new bed. exhaust sytem and cover. The cost for these was not a major part of the total cost to repower, about $10,000. I now have a 3YSM 30 Yanmar that always starts and always runs well. A large investment, to be sure, But it has been great for the peace of mind.
