Looks like its pretty bad. Really hard to say just by looking at in a pic. I'm guessing it will be unsalvageable.

Re: Rebuilding engine!!!

That is some serious carnage. My guess is you would be better off buying a used engine, once you figure in the cost of getting it sleeved. Sorry about your luck.

Ok, best bet is to find another 5.4 like the other guys said. Is the crank still good?
