Just my .02 as a shade tree mechanic: the 6.2 is an LS series motor and the block should be the same across the entire LS line. Most likely the block is fine. Also a good chance that the heads are fine. Regardless, tearing it down and sending the block and heads to the machine shop would be a great first step. If the heads are not cracked, then decking them and replacing the valves/springs would be relatively cheap. Assuming the block is fine, line honing of the crank journals and some new bearings would make it good to go. Would a great opportunity to put in some better quality aftermarket materials as well. Forged rods, higher compression pistons, bigger cam, etc. If you really wanted to do crazy you could put a taller crankshaft in it to stroke it out.
