There is no such thing as a 2.7 turbo. Is this that engine that you bought on eBay? Did you bolt a Turbo on it? With single plug and 11.5:1 compression? If yes, then it's no wonder the thing fell apart. Now I'm really confused.

Those cylinder base gaskets don't just get like that. This engine was beat to hell, potentially from detonation? Then perhaps the head studs pulled and the cylinders got loose and banged around the copper base gaskets. You just don't see that when tearing down an engine, unless the whole thing was imploding...
