Ouch , your screwed sounds like . I would still keep it common rail though. The ppump was the only good thing about the 12v . I own both a 12v and 24 and I wouldnt trade my 24v for the world.
You can always PM ( or email is my screen name @gmail.com ) me if you need advice . Ive been in your position with a few engines.

It May be cheaper to get a running engine or a short block with higher miles and do a refresh. Bore hone gaskets bearings redo head.

I have a VP truck, love it. Sounds way better then the 06. I'm not mechanic, I've done things when needed, like a head gasket, shops wanted 3k to do it. Just the Labor cost. So I did it myself.
That's why I'm leaning towards a mechanical engine, or as mentioned a 6.7. A buddy of mine has a Cummins out of a peterbuilt and and 6 speed Eaton. No idea what size it is, he said he'll look again.

it is pretty easy. Pull your 5.9 out. Place it next to your new 6.7. Swap over your ecm, harness, exhaust manifold and turbo, take out your injectors and put 03-04 spray pattern tips on them, put it all together and put the engine back in.

I would have said go for the in-frame but sounds like your cylinders are going to require some machining...

This was when I just pulled out my 5.9 and put it next to my new 6.7
Will any 6.7 work? Do I need to look for specific years?

Pretty much any 6.7 would work but if you get the 13 and newer, they had better emissions stuff on them and tend to have less issues. If you go for the 13 or newer, you have to change over the idler pulley and mount to the old style and a couple small things. My engine was a 2016 with literally 1 mile on the odometer. I tore it apart and put all the upgrade parts in it.

What if I get a 6.7 with ecm and harness.
Would it be direct drop in and work?

No one in their right mind does an inframe on a parent bore 5.9 or 6.7 with extensive cylinder wall damage.
The cylinder wall in that video did no clean up with just a ball buster .Still has excessive blowby crankcase pressure after his tinkering. With bearings looking like that the crank has to be machined.

Still has the same garbage injectors in it that caused the first failures.

Waste of parts, will fail again soon, next time catastrophically.

NO, most likely that a later year harnass will not mate up all connectors and computers/sensors. Likely to get numerous ECM errors.
Use your 2006 harness and ECM.
New Bosch or BBI injectors or you'll be doing an engine replacement again soon
