I will give you my opinion for what it's worth. Your first question-bolts stretch and sh$t happens. New engine I'm going to guess around $15-18g installed (just what I have been told in the Midwest) could find a used for around 3-4g. Really going to need a complete engine if yours has sent debris through the engine. Could also sell parts off of yours to re-coup some of the cost. To sell the whole truck in the shape it's in will hit you hard. I have bought 5 in the past year from auctions 03-07 mostly crew cab lariats 120,000-260,000 from 2-4g. The last one was an 06 king ranch the dealer told him needed a new engine off the rollback for 4 grand. You could make more by parting the truck out on E-bay or Craiglist lot of work and annoying phone calls but you would get more cash for it. Nothing I have wrote is set in stone just what I have seen locally. Could be different in your area.

We sell remanufactured long blocks starting at $4895. but you would still have to pay the 26 hours labor and parts/fluids to swap it out. Personally I think it would be worth fixing. Unfortunately, I agree with Nathan as far as the value. I've been buying them and putting new engines in. At auction I've seen them go for $2-4,000 with bad engines.
I might be willing to take it as a trade on a 03 F-550 crew cab XLT with a 12' flat bed that I'm putting an engine in. New long block, new injectors, hpop & lpop, oil cooler. I've been driving the truck for 4 months but it's got a cracked piston in it so I'm putting a new engine in it soon.
