Didn't think it was possible. ..at first i thought it was my oil cooler o ring pouring oil after i put big turbo on the car. But i thought twice and put my finger near the switch and it was just a hole there and a hanging wire lol.

You should really put a gauge on there and see what you pressure is. It is unlikely your car had enough pressure to blow the switch off because you would be lowing out of a lot of seals. More than likely the switch was not tight or it was stripped. How are the threads on the switch and the oil filter housing?

Threads are good

Well if the threads are good in the block and on the sensor, then it didn't "blow out". Sounds more like it vibrated out.
