    I am familiar with this scenario. Sucks. Dad put rod and main bearings in a 302 in the carport, with engine still in. On a 2300 that seized due to lack of oil, replacing one cam bearing put it back on the road. Just because it quit running don't mean its completely toast. Maybe if you pulled the oil pan for some exploratory investigation, you'd get a better idea which direction to focus on.
    All Grand Prix, all the time. 69 Model J, 99 GT & GTP coupes. All junk, haha.

    It could very easily just need bearings and rings, but I'm still going through the entire engine and checking everything. I'm also going to do a few mods while it's blown apart... stuff like deleting the balance shaft, adding piston squirters, a high volume oil pump, adding an oil supply and oil drain for the turbo, and a few other things to keep the oil where it needs to be and eliminate potential failure points. I'm also planning on taking the block to a machine shop and having it (at least) hot-tanked, possibly machined if necessary.
