Default Engine Swap Write Up???

Hey guy its been a while since posting, i view all the time but i ran into a serious issue this weekend. I go to school in florida working on my masters but live in chicago. I got my oild changed and inspected all componets and i was fine. I drove 450 mile to Tennessee and it started raining, I have an InJen CAI which sits in front of the tire. I usually dont drive in the rain but I really didnt have a choice. It really started coming down and i knew I had to get to an underpass. I saw one maybe 2 miles down the road but suddenly my car started stalling and jerking around 3000 rpm. This happend to me before, That CAI suck water up so fast. I got to the underpass and as soon as i stopped the whole car cut off, no power anywhere! I have 3 batteries in my car, I didnt see any blown fuses but that was becasue when I finally found the fust it was encased behind a cloudy plastic piece. Dont know how it blew but I had AAA tow me 50 miles up the road. Found out i needed a fuse that only Nissan supplied so I had to buy an 80amp block fuse and run it from the battery. Car started but my engine was making a knocking noise, I thought maybe i had hydrolocked my car but the car started, I ended up getting an oil change and the knocking went away. I drove another 150 miles stopped got some gas got on the Interstate and barely got off the on ramp before a rod cracked my engine. Mind you I just replaced this engine 7 months ago which is conveniently a month outside the warranty I had on it. anyway had to rent a uhal to pull my maxima the last 350 miles. which cost me $450 plus the gas i had to spend on the 6 miles to the gallon ford i was driving. I Just bought another engine and I want to swap them out myself and i searched All over the web to see if anyone had a write up. any help would be great. ironically i had just received my OEM valve body and painted my car the day before. Ugh!!!!
