      I think my turbo is on its way out and I have a spare K03S that I want to get rebuilt and also have the hot side ported and polished. I was going to do both myself, but I don't really have a space (or the time, it seems) to do it. With that said, where can I go to have this done? I sent some emails to SoCal Porting a while ago and they want $250 for a rebuild (if I supply the kit) plus port and polish (which includes a ceramic coating on the hot side), but I haven't gotten in touch with them recently so I have no idea when I can have it done.

      Does anyone know of a place that has pretty quick turnaround and decent prices? Maybe even somewhere in Texas (near Austin)?

      Thanks .

      They won't use my rebuild kit and the cost of their rebuild is more than the cost of SoCal's rebuild, port/polish and ceramic coating, plus shipping both ways. I'm not even sure they would do an actual port and polish, and if they did it would still end up costing a lot more.
