    Thread: The G60 Rebuilder Rating Thread

      Rebuild Services:
      1) Who did you send your charger to for a rebuild? Kompressor Kanada
      2) What was the turnaround time? i.e., how many days from when you sent it out did you get it back? took 7 days to get there, was there for around 7-8 days then 3 days to get it back so about 2 1/2 weeks
      3) What rebuild services did you have performed? Standard rebuild, performance options, paint, etc. sent it in for a tune up but had damage (cracked scoll) so wound up going with the stage 1 rebuild and i took a litle longer than they thought to get the wleding outsourced so they gave me a stage 2 rebuild for the price of stage 1
      4) Were any repairs needed at the time of rebuild, such as apex strip groove repairs?
      yes, full rebuild and some welding on the scroll plus a mild polish
      Customer Satisfaction:
      1) In General, are you happy with the quality of materials/workmanship? Yes Indeedy
      2) Are you happy with the rebuilder's customer service? Great Customer Service, he called me as soon as he got it and I called back to get an update and he told me since it was taking so long getting the welding done he upgraded my stage 1 rebuild to stage 2 for no additional cost and when I received my charger back there was a dozen blow pops and a vw keychain/strap with it!
      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, it doesn't blow oil into my engine anymore, and it sounds great
      4) Did the rebuild come with a warranty? If so, have you had to return the charger for warranty work? If not, why not? I never heard anything about a warrenty from them maybe because I have a 68mm pulley

      1) Who did you send your charger to for a rebuild? Kompressor Kanada
      2) What was the turnaround time? i.e., how many days from when you sent it out did you get it back? Services took about a month total. Charger arrived at KK 2 days before Christmas, and was worked on during the week between Christmas and New Years.
      3) What rebuild services did you have performed? Stage 4 rebuild.
      4) Were any repairs needed at the time of rebuild, such as apex strip groove repairs?
      Yes. The bolt holding the pulley broke, and the pulley itself was damaged, as well as the main shaft. Dave put in used parts and was able to repair it for a great price!
      Customer Satisfaction:
      1) In General, are you happy with the quality of materials/workmanship? Very!
      2) Are you happy with the rebuilder's customer service? Outstanding communication! Dave talked to me on the phone, as well as on MSN. He answered all my questions quickly.
      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'm still in the break in period, but the charger is alot quieter than it was when I pulled it out.
      4) Did the rebuild come with a warranty? If so, have you had to return the charger for warranty work? If not, why not? The break in instruction show that there is a 180 day warranty. It states it is for the stock 78mm pulley. I am running a 68mm and that is what was on it when it was sent in.

      Kompressor Kanada
      2) What was the turnaround time? i.e., how many days from when
      you sent it out did you get it back?
      Two weeks plus
      3) What rebuild services did you have performed? Standard rebuild,
      performance options, paint, etc.?
      I had the oem rebuild with stage 4 port polish and painted aluminum
      4) Were any repairs needed at the time of rebuild, such as apex strip
      groove repairs?
      When Dave received my Charger he informed me that it was shot! He had to rebuild one from his shelf, that was why mine took so long
      Customer Satisfaction:
      1) In General, are you happy with the quality of
      materials/workmanship?
      Yes looks great, I have only been driving it a week so we will see how much I like it.
      2) Are you happy with the rebuilder's customer service?
      GREAT, David answered the stupid questions I asked and he did his best to get me back on the road as quickly as possible. With Blown Charger, Christmas and New Years it wasn't easy [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
      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 did not check boost prior to the rebuild, I have just ordered a gauge and I have not driven the car hard yet, as it has only been a week or so, we will see
      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, on the phone and email he said 1 year , but his invoice onlt stated 6 months. I will get back to him and verify this.

      Well, the charger came with no warranty due to the smaller pulley, however, the guys at BBM were willing to check my charger out when I noticed and oil leak about 2 weeks after installing. So far still dont know where the oil leak is coming from, but they made no issues about checking it out for me, even though it technically didn't come with a warranty. These guys are AWESOME, don't hesitate to do business with them!

      Had my supercharger rebuild by Bahn Brenner in Aug 2004.
      Turnaround time was about one week.
      Had the standard rebuilt done with some machining on the outlet.
      No repairs done at this time. Just excellent work by them.
      I am very happy with the service, quality of materials and workmanship.
      Customer service was excellent
      Much improved performance from the G60.
      It has been well over the warranty and have not had any problems with the system. It just runs and runs.
      Overall rating would be a 10 for quality of work.
      Custome service would be a 10.
      Great job by all at Bahn Brenner. Thank you.

      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 [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] 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! [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      UPDATE...I now have 10k miles on my charger and now only boosts 5psi, i have a fresh motor rebuild with good compression and no boost leaks!

      Not good, you might need a new charger
      We did this build in early 2004
      Just for the record the g-lader can be an unreliable unit when over driven with a power pulley even if brand new or newly rebuilt.
      I'll talk to you soon.
      Sorry to see that your charger is in this condition.

      Let's just say I have a few.
      01-18-2008 12:55 PM #120
      Rebuild Services:
      1) Who did you send your charger to for a rebuild? Kompressor Kanada
      2) What was the turnaround time? i.e., how many days from when you sent it out did you get it back? Less than 2 weeks
      3) What rebuild services did you have performed? Stage 4
      4) Were any repairs needed at the time of rebuild, such as apex strip groove repairs? not that I remember
      Customer Satisfaction:
      1) In General, are you happy with the quality of materials/workmanship? Oh yeah
      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? The stage 4 delivers more than I expected it to.
      4) Did the rebuild come with a warranty? If so, have you had to return the charger for warranty work? Yes, it came with a warranty and thankfully I haven't had a need for it.

      just thought i'd post up here.
      i didnt actually get my 'charger "rebuilt" but i bought it off ebay and the PO said it was rebuilt a few hundred miles ago, already had RSR stage IV porting so i had the gt70 porting done as well.
      took 3 weeks including shipping time from SE tennessee to his facility in oregon, they took it apart and recommended the tune up and the bearings looked great so i went along with this. got it back and it took me almost a month to break it in properly (500 miles with little to no boost, i only hit 2-3 psi towards the end of the break in once or twice, and i never went over 3k rpms). been almost a thousand miles since i got it back with no issues. shes really quiet and boosts slightly low but im guessing i have a few small boost leaks to chase down. no oil leaks and i will be sending it back in a year for another inspection and probably a tune up and belt.
      thanks john! (charger went to BBM by the way)

      Just dropping a quick note to all of the recent people that have sent us G-Laders for rebuilds, repairs and upgrades.
      We greatly appreciate your business!

      JBETZ I have a couple questions for you regarding a pulley, What would be the best way to contact you? I need help identifying it, it is supposedly a BBM pulley.

      Rebuild Services:

      1) Who did you send your charger to for a rebuild? BBM
      2) What was the turnaround time? i.e., how many days from when you sent it out did you get it back? 10 days
      3) What rebuild services did you have performed? Standard rebuild, performance options, paint, etc. Standard oem rebuild
      4) Were any repairs needed at the time of rebuild, such as apex strip groove repairs? No
      Customer Satisfaction:
      1) In General, are you happy with the quality of materials/workmanship? I'm currently in contact with John at BBM. He's made it very clear he stands behind his warranty if needed [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
      2) Are you happy with the rebuilder's customer service? 10.. they were informative, courteous, and professional
      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? Hard to tell staying off boost and under 3k rpm. Still breaking in with almost 200 miles so far.. noticed right away that it's much quieter though.
      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 and no
      Overall Rating:
      1) On a scale of 1 to 10, rate the quality of work. 10
      2) On a scale of 1 to 10, rate the quality of customer service. 10

      Update 10/27/08 Due to a small oil leak BBM paid for shipping both ways, replaced oil seal free of charge, and had it back to me within days. Thanks John... honoring your warranty along with quick service like that guarantees I'll be back for more! [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
