      BBM

      2) What was the turnaround time? i.e., how many days from when you sent it out did you get it back?

      a little over 6 weeks after the time of ordering.

      3) What rebuild services did you have performed? Standard rebuild, performance options, paint, etc.

      GT rebuild with full port and polish.

      4) Were any repairs needed at the time of rebuild, such as apex strip groove repairs?

      Non-that I was informed about

      Customer Satisfaction:
      1) In General, are you happy with the quality of materials/workmanship?

      NO, it got worse. When I shipped it out I was getting about 3psi of boost after I finally got it back it did not put out any boost.

      2) Are you happy with the rebuilder's customer service?

      NO, They sent me the wrong supercharger rebuild the first time around. I then had to pay to ship it back to them and have the correct one sent back down to me. I ended up having to pay for shipping 4 times.

      3) Was there an improvement in charger performance (i.e. boost level) as a result of the rebuild, or as a result of the performance upgrades?

      NO, after the rebuild I got 0 boost out of the charger.

      4) Did the rebuild come with a warranty? If so, have you had to return the charger for warranty work? If not, why not?

      Non-that I was made aware of. There wasn’t event any paper work to let me know what they had done or if there were any problems.

      One very pissed off BBM customer. I ended up taking it to a local shop who told me that the insides had been botched so bad they were surprised that it had not grenaded on me. After spending over $2000 on the rebuild I had to spend another $3500 going with another solution. Avoid BBM if you can.

      Just a thought I wanted to post after reading such a negative review of a company so many forum members hold in high esteem. If/When you have problems with someone's products or services, the first thing that should happen is an effort to work those problems out with the company. Often, the cause of something like a 0 boost reading can be outside the charger (i.e. boost hoses, IC, etc.) In fact, I was suprised enough by your comments that I checked with BBM, and though they have record of you as a customer, it was not for rebuilding a charger.

      Anyways, I don't want to get this thread off topic, but just thought I'd add my thoughts.

      I don’t want to go to far off topic but I felt a response was warranted here. I just wanted to let you know that I replaced all of my boost hoses and used a cleaned and boost verified intercooler on the car. I ran the car no higher then 2700rpm for about 1,000 miles to break it in. After the break in I was still not getting any boost in fact it had gone down. After pulling the system apart I found grease from the charger all up in the hoses and intercooler. I ended up having to run the car naturally aspirated for several months while saving up the money to get a different solution. As for them not finding me in their "system" doesn’t surprise me. It took them 2 tries to get me what that I ordered in the first place and ended up having to pay shipping there and back on both tries.
      On another note I have purchased other things there and had no problems getting what I ordered. I may have gone overboard in the first post because just thinking about the money spent really gets my ire up.

      I am going to find out what is going on here!
      Playing phone tag with this guy....
      Our records show that he just bought a screw compressor pulley???
      I'm not sure what the story is, we have no records of even doing a g-lader under his name.
      Anyway, I sure would like to help him get more than 0 psi.

      Best wishes,

      Rebuild Services:
      1) Who did you send your charger to for a rebuild?

      KompressorKanada

      2) What was the turnaround time? i.e., how many days from when you sent it out did you get it back?
      5 business days

      3) What rebuild services did you have performed? Standard rebuild, performance options, paint, etc.
      Standard rebuild with Stage3 port and polish, OEM VW paint. I also bought Dave's Hop-Up Kit including 65mm pulley.

      4) Were any repairs needed at the time of rebuild, such as apex strip groove repairs?
      Yes, displacer tip needed welding to fix a small crack.

      Customer Satisfaction:
      1) In General, are you happy with the quality of materials/workmanship?

      Absolutely. Dave does awesome top notch work.

      2) Are you happy with the rebuilder's customer service?
      Yes. The roar intake pipe I bought at the same time cracked and Dave worked very hard to get his fabricator (who he now no longer uses) to make me a replacement which he shipped free of charge. Recently I thought I might have excessive charger blow by and he spend quite alot of time with me on MSN troubleshooting the problem (turned out to be nothing to do with the charger at all).

      3) Was there an improvement in charger performance (i.e. boost level) as a result of the rebuild, or as a result of the performance upgrades?
      Hell yes! Dave's got numbers sheet my from most recent dyno run posted in the rebuild section of his site. It's about 8000km since the rebuild and in third I pulled 13.2psi @ 2516RPM and 18.1psi @ 5899RPM.

      4) Did the rebuild come with a warranty? If so, have you had to return the charger for warranty work? If not, why not?
      No, I chose a 65mm pulley which meant it came without warrantly. Dave made a point of explaining to me that the pulley invalidated any warranty's on the charger at the time and required I give him acknowledgment of that fact before proceeding. As a result of that info and the fact it was my choice, I had no problems with the lack of warranty.

      Ive ALWAYS been taken care of by John. Charger built 3 years ago and he was always willnig to service it and help me out Same deal with the Lysholm GREAT service!!!

      I had my blower serviced by bahn brenner about a year ago among many other upgrades in the past. I consider myself one of the select few people that gets a chance to see how bahn brenner operates in and out of the shop. when i first met john at bbm he took the time out of his busy schedule to show me the possible upgrades that i could do to my corrado, then afterwards took me for a ride in his corrado. This to me showed that this is a group of guys who go above and beyond the call of duty to make sure that there customers are satisfied and in the time that ive known them i have seen nothing but that. i find it very odd that somebody would have a problem with bbm due to the commitment and passion that these guys share for there customers and there products. Kudos to John and the rest of the BBM crew for making sure that all my performance needs are taken care of.

    13. 03-11-2004 08:07 PM #48
      If I had stayed with my g-lader that I had rebuilt and installed by BBM I would've definetly kept my business with them. An all-around great group of guys who do stuff for their customers you never see from a lot of your local tuners or general business ventures in general.

      I have had my charger serviced by BBM and KK.
      (car now owned by a buddy who lives with me)

      1st time was BBM I initially was not to happy because when I got it back it leaked from the main pulley seal which was why I had sent it to them in the first place. When I sent it back they almost did not warranty it because I had removed the pulley to install it easier. They ended up warranting it though because the day I got it I called them because it was leaking when I installed it.
      John did make it right though.
      I never noticed any diff in boost and when I got it back the 2nd time from BBM the seal had been pinned(I believe thats what they call it when you make two indentations on the metal around the main pulley seal to bring the metal in tighter) sorry if that is unclear I am not to mechanical. It has never leaked though. I was a little weary of BBM after that which is probally why I used KK the second time.

      KK only did the service with new strips, klubber and stage2 port. Felt a lil more boost that time. probally from the port. KK was a little more personable and seemed a touch easier to work with.

      Both companies are good though. buddy just had engine rebuilt cause of blown head gasket and charger appears to have excess oil in tubes now. So it is decission time again for me as he doesnt know who to go with.

      Rebuild Services:

      Who did you send your charger to for a rebuild?
      Dave @ Kompressor Kanada

      What was the turnaround time?
      Took about 2 weeks to get there (I didn't want to pay $80 to get it there, I was in no rush), and he had it for about 4 days, and then it took 2 days to ship back.

      What rebuild services did you have performed?
      Full rebuild, Stage 4 porting, 68mm pulley

      Were any repairs needed at the time of rebuild, such as apex strip groove repairs?
      There was displacer damage, and that had to be repaired.

      Customer Satisfaction:

      In General, are you happy with the quality of materials/workmanship?
      VERY.

      Are you happy with the rebuilder's customer service?
      Yes, Dave is an awesome guy to do business with.

      Was there an improvement in charger performance (i.e. boost level) as a result of the rebuild, or as a result of the performance upgrades?
      Yes.

      Did the rebuild come with a warranty? If so, have you had to return the charger for warranty work? If not, why not?
      Well, the paper said that any charger with a smaller pulley does not include the warranty, yet it also says that if he installed it, then it does not void the warranty? I'm not too sure about that.

      Rebuild Services:

      1) Who did you send your charger to for a rebuild? : Bahn Brenner

      2) What was the turnaround time? i.e., how many days from when you sent it out did you get it back? 3.5 weeks - Not BB's fault. Fed-Ex "misplaced" my charger for a bit - approx 2 weeks. They only had it in-house approx 3-4 days before i got the call that it was done.

      3) What rebuild services did you have performed? Standard rebuild, performance options, paint, etc. : OE Spec rebuild with GT-70 intake porting and RS/RSR outlet porting.

      4) Were any repairs needed at the time of rebuild, such as apex strip groove repairs? : Not that i was aware of.

      Customer Satisfaction:
      1) In General, are you happy with the quality of materials/workmanship? Yes, spot on job.

      2) Are you happy with the rebuilder's customer service? Yes.

      3) Was there an improvement in charger performance (i.e. boost level) as a result of the rebuild, or as a result of the performance upgrades? Yes- before the rebuild i was putting out 4-5 psi at 6K. After the breakin i was hitting 6-7 at 3k

      4) Did the rebuild come with a warranty? If so, have you had to return the charger for warranty work? If not, why not? Yes it came with a warranty as long as i keep the stock pulley on. Havent had to use it as of yet.

      If i had it to do over again, the only thing i would do different is ship with another carrier..


      Also, when doing the GT-70 upgrade they have to send you a hose to attach your charger to your airbox. Well, when they shipped mine out they forgot to throw it in the box. Whoops.. Called up after i got the package and they had the hose and the clamps shipped out overnight with saturday delivery for no charge. That is a great example of customer service. It was something small but it was something necessary and they made it right with out me having to beg and plead. Thanks again John & Co..

      Just got my G-60 going after having an oem spec rebuild by Bahn Brenner. So far-so good seems to be pumping some good psi. Good customer service, as soon as they got it they inspected it and called me. I got it back 6 buisness days after I sent it overall 9.5, -.5 because when I got the pakage back the charger was faced pulley down and resting against the bottom of the box, if it had been dropped it would've landed directly on the pulley... otherwise great expeience with BBM, thanks guys, and keep up the good work!

During a phone conversation he clearly explained what needed to be done, and when I told him to forget about the stage 2 option because of the extra cost of the welding repairs, he did it anyway free of charge.

      1) Who did you send your charger to for a rebuild?David, KK
      2) What was the turnaround time? i.e., how many days from when you sent it out did you get it back?7 work days. Exactly what I was quoted.and that was ground return. no rush.
      3) What rebuild services did you have performed? Standard rebuild, performance options, paint, etc. Rebuild, stage4, salvaged my casings with his displacer, all the same gen, flat black paint. flawless.
      4) Were any repairs needed at the time of rebuild, such as apex strip groove repairs? No repairs, however, David went above and beyond the call of duty to make me a great deal on a clean displacer, as mine was cracked, irrepairably, and he did so at the expense of one of his own cores, hoping that he'd be able to make a match down the road. Truly a gentleman.

      Customer Satisfaction:
      1) In General, are you happy with the quality of materials/workmanship? I am so happy I could .....wait, just did. Peed.
      2) Are you happy with the rebuilder's customer service? The only thing better than the flat black finish, was David's flat sense of humor (jk, D.) Again, nothing but a true gentleman.If I emailed him, 10 minutes later he was on the other phone. It was almost sort of creepy.
      3) Was there an improvement in charger performance (i.e. boost level) as a result of the rebuild, or as a result of the performance upgrades? GOBS!
      4) Did the rebuild come with a warranty? If so, have you had to return the charger for warranty work? If not, why not? Yes, No, and because the stuff was right.

      Who did you send your charger to for a rebuild?

      Dave @ Kompressor Kanada

      What was the turnaround time?

      About 2-2.5 weeks due to repairs, custom paint, and Dave did the work and let me pay when I had collected all my funds

      What rebuild services did you have performed?

      Full rebuild plus Stage 4 porting, the first geman flag paint job

      Were any repairs needed at the time of rebuild, such as apex strip groove repairs?

      There was about an inch worth of displacer damage that needed to be welded

      Customer Satisfaction:

      In General, are you happy with the quality of materials/workmanship?

      VERY.

      Are you happy with the rebuilder's customer service?

      Absolutely

      Was there an improvement in charger performance (i.e. boost level) as a result of the rebuild, or as a result of the performance upgrades?

      Repaired to normal boost levels, tho full boost comes sooner

      Did the rebuild come with a warranty? If so, have you had to return the charger for warranty work? If not, why not?

      No, I use a 65mm pulley not supplied or installed by KK

      Bahn Brenner Motorsports
      2) What was the turnaround time? i.e., how many days from when you sent it out did you get it back?
      3 Days. They were very busy at the time. Surprised they got it done as soon as they did cause I said I need it back by friday I got it thursday.

      3) What rebuild services did you have performed? Standard rebuild, paint. Performance options: GT-70 porting, RS/RSR Porting, ported to the MAX!

      4) Were any repairs needed at the time of rebuild, such as apex strip groove repairs?
      Very slight grove repair cause an apex strip slipped some time.

      Customer Satisfaction:
      1) In General, are you happy with the quality of materials/workmanship?
      Yes

      2) Are you happy with the rebuilder's customer service?
      They bumped me to the front of the rebuild line to get it to me even before I needed it. Good guys!

      3) Was there an improvement in charger performance (i.e. boost level) as a result of the rebuild, or as a result of the performance upgrades?
      I had some boost leaks and I took it very easy on the break-in but once I got the boost leaks fixed and break-in was over. It was like BALLS TO THE WALLS BOYS!!! I also after the break in got a 68mm pulley. So I went from 6psi to like 14psi. Feels good!

      4) Did the rebuild come with a warranty? If so, have you had to return the charger for warranty work? If not, why not?
      There is a warranty but no return for warranty work cause none is need boosting very well.
