Does your engine use a timing chain or gears? A good backfire will cause the timing chain to jump a tooth or more if it's loose. Check your timing--if it's way off, check further.

2.8 uses timing gears made of a odd fiber material in stock form, and can disintegrate with age and redline rpms. I would start looking at more mundane things first like ingestion of water or a TFI module that died.

Most of what you see missing is in the oil system...that is not good.
IMO pull the oil pan !

Tear down time, the camshaft will be trashed too, lots of filings in the oil.
Decision time: trash it or fix it.
