That looks like total carnage.

Any idea is the original block is salvageable?


It should be able to be resleeved. I'm not sure if it's worth the $ just to have the original block or not though.

Yep it looks worse than I was expecting since there wasn't any noises other than the high rev.

If nothing else, it is worth hanging onto. Down the road if the car is returned to stock(ish) you may have more affection towards the original motor. It would also help any potential resell value.

Yup. Hanging onto it for an (eventual) move back to stock trim is a smart move. I've gotta think there's a big difference in value for the car with the original block vs. anything else under the hood.
