Sucks to hear that man.
When I tore my engine down (4 cracked rings) I was expecting to have cracked heads as it seems to be more common than not ( like the 6.0). I got lucky, mine were both fine.
I am replacing all the lifters, pushrods and rockers as maintenance. This stuff should be bullet proof, but there seems to be issues here and there.
I think that fuel dilution has to play some what of a role in this, possible causing the needle bearings in the lifters to get out of whack or what have you. Same thing with the rockers. Not enough lubrication over time and they wear a little. Then one day they go sideways and take the top end out. Just my opinion, I think that once you put it all back together you will be good to go. Im assuming that you have the DPF delete, so that should take care of any fuel issues.
Make sure the fuel rails and injector feed lines had no leaks (lines will need replacing, one time use).
Easy to get a full EGR delete in there at this time too.
Maybe send the injectors out for flow testing. I had 3 come back as FAIL, only had one contribution code at the time. Easier to do it now.
Good luck and keep us posted
