Wow, that's some pretty serious carnage!
I'm surprised a rod didn't let go and otherwise other bits of metal making 
their escape from the block with that much internal damage.

Me and Huw discussed that the best way to make a more spectacular exit to an 
I5 (or any other engine for that matter) would be to drain all the oil out 
and then drop the oil pan and loosen some rod bolts..... ;-)
