Struggling a bit with your description of what happened. The engine and transmission are bolted together into an integrated assembly that's approximately 24" wide, 28" tall, and almost 6 feet long (engine and trans combined). There's just a bit over 4" clearance between the bottom of the car and the road so if your engine could fall out (it really can't but that's a different story) the car would be thrown at least a foot and a half in the air to clear to engine and transmission.
