06 3.0 - Where would first point of failure be if ran out of oil - diagnosing what locked up

so...
im not pointing any fingers..
but somebody fergot the old seal from the oil filter and ended up putting new filter on with old seal still stuck up there.
oil vomit marked the path of the post oil change test run for a good 100yds before it went dry.

less than 1/4 mile from driveway to locked motor.

motor since been unlocked by pulling plugs, and intake... dumping in oil... and starter bumped it free.

bolted everything back together and after it worked the oil out it fired right up.
smoked for 45 minutes or so light black stuff i assume from burning oil off in exhaust.

good power...
no real loss in economy that was noticeable...
but it has a significant tick going on.

heres the rub.
motor is already out.
was replaced 2 years ago almost.
so no vids unfortunately.
basically i figure the best head start i can get is ask you guys what you think.
worse case scenario a ring job eh?

If it locked and then busted loose, that would be reminiscent of my old two stroke dirt bike seizing, then running after it cooled off. If that happened, you will have aluminum from your pistons on your cylinders, just like my old Suzuki did. And you'll have a perpetual oil burner.

I can't imagine the mains and cam bearings escaped injury.

IMO, a complete teardown is required.
