Transmission Casing Hole

Hey Guys so I'm hoping that I don't have a major problem here.
So I damaged my hydraulic lifters in my 2006 ford Mustang v6 MT. Long story short I tried using a lot of the Lucas Oil to quiet my lifters before I fix them and I believe that I may have over filled on the oil. One day I was driving and I heard something pop. Well all of my oil leaked out from the bottom and it looks like the oil pan is still in tact but the transmission casing may have a hole in it. My question is, is there a way to fix this ? I'm praying to God I don't need to replace this transmission again! Please help. Thanks Guys! I attached some pictures below. The image is obviously from the bottom of the car and where the light is shining is where the front of the car is located.

Engine oil won't leak out the trans. IT would leak from the bell
housing if the rear main seal went.

Anyhow, yeah, something blew a hole in the trans, and all your
ATF/SyncroMesh leaked out; which is RED or Dark Red. Engine
oil would be much darker, black...

You will be replacing that transmission, again.

Man I was hoping that wasn't so. I was thinking about just pulling the trans and taking it to a welding shop to fix that spot because I have the part that blew off SMH. Thoughts? Thanks for that reply 08 mustang dude!

The problem with welding that back on, is it broke at a bolt hole. You also
have to find out why it broke, was it from the inside out, or did you hit
something on the road. It should not have just broken off without
something impacting the area on either side, unless it was just a weak
spot in the metal when cast... Even then, the bolt should have held it
in place if it just cracked... It even broke where there are gussets...

You still have the piece, so you see any scrape marks on the gussets,
or anywhere else? Any marks on the back side?

Not to stir up things, but the damage appears to be in between the starter and motor mount.
Above the oil pan pictured below.
Maybe I'm looking at it wrong.
I'd rather replace the trans than the block.

Woah, yeah, wait a second here.. That does look like the motor mount
bracket. So, that's NOT the transmission case that has the hole in it,
that's the MOTOR that has the hole in it... You're replacing a MOTOR
dude, not a transmission.

Maybe a piston skirt had a crack, causing you to think it was a lifter. It sounds just like a partly collapsed lifter
Happened to me years ago. I just replaced the pistons, bearings, and rings.
My engine did not blow because the "gang" helped me trouble shoot it.
A cracked piston skirt can break a piece off, and contribute to a thrown rod.

Sorry.

How would that put a huge hole in the engine block?
