I am a Land Rover tech and have taken very good care of this vehicle. It started out with the factory supplied 4.0 which the previous owner blew up. I took the opportunity to upgrade the engine. It is a known failure of the discovery II 4.6 engine that the cylinder liners can knock, and the engine I received was known to have this problem so I mitigated this with the pinning procedure. I have driven this vehicle all over Colorado, Moab Utah, Grand Canyon Arizona and Grand staircase Utah without any incident. The acceleration is amazing compared to a regular 4.0. Litre. This is not meant to be a grocery getter, it is built for adventure and if you know Land Rover it does not disappoint. I performed all the work to make it reliable for overlanding or as a solid off-road rig. The real value is in the services performed, suspension and tires.

-Cylinder liner pins seep oil. Very minor, just clean them off at every oil change.
-Thrust angle slightly off, still within spec. Despite 2 alignments. Just means it will torque steer slightly on take off. After installing the engine I broke a new mount on the drivers side. Have installed a limiting strap to keep this from happening again and of course replaced the broken mount.
-Rear sway bar removed for better articulation. This allows the rear springs to come out of the rear upper perches. I have a set of spring dislocation cones I will include with the sale.
