Replacing the entire engine because of an oil leak is absurd.
What you can do is get it on the dyno and have someone else drive while you watch for where the oil comes from, while wearing eye protection of course.
Or pull the hood off and rig up a camera and take it for a drive.
Id also recommed getting some dye, it might help you identify they general location that's causing the problem.
