I just put a 2013 complete top end on my 2016 Camo.
The process I used to validate fitment was to put a parts schematic for a 2013 (using one of the online OEM Parts Providers) up against a 2016 and compared part numbers. In some cases, complete assemblies are offered for sale on the OEM website. For instance a complete cylinder head of the 2014 and 2017 are the same part. Similarly, the complete crankcase assembly of the 2014 and 2017 are the same part. Even though you're replacing the engine, I would think this may be a useful (if anything "piece-of-mind") process to make the investments in the engine/parts.
Also, you didn't say what the problem with your 17 was but, honestly, I ain't no mechanic and pulled off a top end replacement using the Service Manual. Depending on your issue you may have both an easier and cheaper job ahead of you if the comfort level is there. Just sayin. Either way, good luck, sir.
