I just bought an 04 Discovery w/74k and new engine from Car Cannible/Cannible V8 and want to say that so far Ryan and Steve have been great to deal with. It had a oil pan leak and check engine code develop shortly after purchasing it. Had Auto Zone pull codes and found a lean left bank which pointed to oxygen sensor, called Steve back and explained what I found and he sent me an oxygen sensor because I live in Missouri and couldn't run it right back in. The sensor didn't cure the problem after all and the truck started to get the 3 amigos come on and off intermittently so I called Steve and he said to bring it back in. He found that a hose had come of the air pump which was causing the check engine code. He found the shuttle valve frayed wiring was activating the 3 amigos. The three amigos would come on at any time (moving or not) and go off when ever i turned off the engine. After restarting they would be off again but would eventually come back on until I turned it off again. He redone the oil pan gasket and now we have had it back a week and no more problems, all codes and alarms gone. This engine has a slightly larger cam and is really responsive compared to my old D1 and mileage is still 18 highway so it didn't suffer mpg from the power increase. I've had a great experience dealing with Car Cannible and Cannible V8 so far (fyi these are two separate companies, Steve runs Cannible V8 and Ryan runs Car Cannible). I'm not saying they haven't had problems in the past but my experience has been good so far. Keep in mind the problem with reviews are that folks don't share their good experiences as well as they share their bad ones.
