There was some interesting stuff there. I’m waiting until I get to a good internet connection to post the remaining photos of cars. Went to another lot but it wasn’t as big but I had some good stuff too. We plan on going to a pretty nice lot tomorrow I believe.

Boss’ new daily. He wanted a GS350, but listened to me and drove an F Sport. Then he was sold and the search began. Found that one about an hour from our place down in Florida for a good deal.

Nope, but there was a brand new GS F that I mentioned earlier in the thread that he liked a lot. He just wasn’t keen on the idea of dishing that much money on a brand new car. Depreciating asset and all that, plus he’s not a fan of the big grill front ends that Lexus has on all their models nowadays.
I did try to get my grandfather to buy the GT. That thing will be worth some serious coin in a decade or two. The value has already went up but I think it’ll be a million dollar car in the future.

Looks like a simple multifunction switch... Couldn't have cost any more than maybe $150.

The real question is, why would a Bentley NOT have a steering angle sensor?

Ok I was holding off on an update until I got a proper diagnosis, by my machine shop, of the damage. We saw 3 spun rod bearings while disassembling the engine. So crank was most likely done. After getting the engine down to the machine shop it turns out the damage was far worse than that. I figured there’d be some metal debris in the oil, proven right when there was debris on the cams. (See earlier photos)
So one piston made contact with the head, and there was catastrophic oil contamination due to metal debris. Damage: 1 piston done, 1 rod done, crank done, the remaining 7 rods and pistons can be saved but will need to be reworked, cams done, lifters done, timing components done, etc. As my machine shop stated the engine was very close to being totally destroyed. The good news, Block is saved and fixed, along with the heads. And yes the head that was hit by the piston is repaired. After finding out the pistons are actually dished (-3cc) he finally found one after about a week of searching. Now the very bad news: the crank. He’s called nearly everyone going well into Florida and all the way to California. No one has one in F6TECE specs, and ever so conveniently Ford has discontinued the crank. So we’re searching for a used one, or I might have to bite the bullet and get my crank repaired. We’re trying to get all my options before deciding anything. There’s also some more good news (not sarcasm); I sent nearly all the engine down to the machine shop. The car was from the east coast and the saltwater air did a number on the bare aluminum. Photos of the engine after cleaning:

So a stroker crank is not an option with this engine? Just asking, I don't a thing about these engines.

It's hard to tell how bad that crank journal is from the picture but I would try to save it if it is possible. Used Kellogg 4.6 cranks are available, (There may even be some NOS brand new in the box cranks floating around) but they usually need to be, at least, polished before installing them, so you have to add that to the cost of purchasing a replacement v possibly machining your existing crank.
What did the machine shop say about machining the crank? Did they think that it would clean up by removing 0.01 or 0.02 of material?

No a stroker kit isn’t an option.

Machine shop stated metal will have to be added. But I may have found a crank, my machine shop will validate if it’s compatible.

I’m happy about that. Another good note is I got a really good deal on a Terminator IRS. I’m going to be picking that up when I get my tax returns. Also something else came in today for the Mach:
