That's going to be a big rebuild. It appears from the photo the timing chain separated (failed master link?), that will keep the valves in position, and on the cylinders that had valves open, the pistons will likely have impact damage, as well as bent/broken valves and possibly cylinder head damage. Hopefully no bent connecting rods, but they will have to be checked too.
2012 Touareg TDI ("Badger"), Highline with sport and towing pkg., Canyon Grey/Black. Awesome.
1984 Toyota Landcruiser BJ60 ("Huntley"), Blue/Brown, 3B diesel, manual everything, daily driver for the past 27 years and 454,000km. Priceless.
Dog is my co-pilot.
