My suggestion, remove engine from the sled to properly inspect and repair. Key to not blowing up again, figure out exactly what happened the first time as typically the F10 is a very reliable engine.

Once you dig into it, engine removal is not as bad as it looks.

The piston skirt broke. Going with a used motor.

A piston isn't a big deal, unless it exited out the bottom of the case. I'd look the used motor over really close. Seems like a bit of an over reaction to me.

Check your throttle body boots. Seen one go because of a big crack in it.
