That Dude that fixes BRONZE impeller should be able to repair that good as new. Seriously I have never seen one that bad. Did the crank break first?

oddly enough he said it was running but making a lot of noise, lots of oil mess. He said rotator was ok, not even a spun bearing:))eek:))

So the oil pan and intake were holding it together and it was still running?

i believe it was a buick v6 24 lbs of boost.

That's a 109 casting out of an '86 or '87 Buick Grand National or T-type. Takes waaaaaay more than 24#'s to make them act up, but damn. That's some serious splittage. I can't imagine the amount of detonation to make that happen (and how bad ass the pistons are to let it get that far). Normally the 4bolt head sealing won't let it get to that level.
