Shattered the pan???? Must have been something big to shatter the cast upper pan. Did you get it shut down in time?

If only the lower steel pan you should be able to replace it without much difficulty18 bolts or so. If it is the upper pan, then you might have to raise the engine, or possibly remove the engine to get the upper pan free of the sump or crossmember.
