First off my car is a 2008 Mercedes E63 AMG but it’s not included on the drop down list so I selected an E500. I was driving along the freeway when I gave the car gas to pass a slower car and my car suddenly starting running real rough and smoke started coming out of the tail pipe and then my check engine starting blinking. I live about a mile from where this happened so I slowly drove home and parked in the drive way. I then checked the OBD II codes with my scanner and it stated a misfire in cylinder 4 and 6. I decided to try and start the car again but it would not start. Next morning after leaving the battery disconnected over night I tried to start the car again and as soon as I turned the engine over I heard a loud bang like a shotgun going off and when I looked into the engine bay my intake manifold had exploded and sent shrapnel all over the place.

O man, that's a good one. Can you please shoot a quick video with your phone so we can see what's going on? that would be great. You can upload it here with your response. It sounds like an injector shorted open and filled the engine with fuel. You will need to change the oil and remove all injectors to find out which one is bad. Here is a guide to help with diagrams below to help you change out the intake and injectors:

Check out the diagrams (below). Please let us know what you find. We are interested to see what it is.
