I have an 05 v70 with that engine (in california though as you might expect), with a similar failure - conn rod came right through the side of engine block. mileage about 130k. not what you'd expect from volvo. dont know why you would have that engine in NY though - b5244s vin 61 seems to be standard nationally except california. possibly dealer ordered the wrong model.

just found this on the vin 64 s6 engine which may explain. 64 = B5244S6 S60/V70 2.4 FWD - Automatic only in the States of CA, NY, MA, VT, ME, RI, NH and Contiguous States http://new.volvocars.com/ownersdocs/2006/2006_VIN-VIC/vin2006.html
