I emailed them yesterday and they got back to me today. They are going to send me a new intake mount. My only concern is whether any of that got into my engine and would it do to my engine?

Keep your pictures and e-mail from K&N. It would be hard to prove if it damaged the engine, but you never know so I would keep everything including the old part. By any chance did you e-mail the pictures to them?
