Hi,
A hole blown from the inside out of your oil pan would most likely be a broken connecting rod bolt, or some other catastrophic mechanical failure within the bottom end.
When you get to look at what has happened in the lower end, then you can make a decision on which way to go.
I'd say a suspect overheated engine that now has a hole in the sump is going to be time for a complete engine rebuild.
