how hot is too hot (bearings ok?)

found a broken cam shaft on the drivers side.
upon pulling heads off found discoloration of head bolts.
lots of blue. = overheating. right?
no obvious cracking between intake and exhaust ports.
i am for sure redoing heads, gaskets, valve guides, etc.
how likely is it that the lower end has seen significant damage?
Pistons and cylinder walls suspect?
I want to avoid a total rebuild $$ if possible.
btw, this sure is a great web site.
we should all buy the administrators a good cold beer or three.

Oh ya, get some new headbolts as well, or at least some out of a motor in better shape.
