How the hell the main feed could short out, who knows, but I think that will be their assessment. We'll see what the insurance adjuster and whomever else has to say.

Just spoke with my home insurance dude minutes ago; should have the adjuster here today or tomorrow.

I'm trying to get enthused about pulling the engine/tranny, but of course I have zero tools now to do the job. It looks like the B&B intercooler survived (at least it still looks like an IC), but I haven't looked closely. It's just all bits and pieces, guess we'll see. Sheeeiit......
Mark check with your local electric company, to see if they had any work going on in a nearby transformer. A co worker of mine had some damages to appliances due to a power surge from a nearby transformer.
