      Just as aside I think that it is interesting to see the editing that has been done to this post. I had a dope charger built last year and posted my feedback, but apparently this thread is owned between BBM and KK. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthdown.gif[/IMG]
      Though I don't doubt they can build good chargers...what happened to freedom of the press????????

      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? I shipped slow to him, but once in hand, David had my charger massaged and returned in 7 days, exactly what I had been told.
      3) What rebuild services did you have performed? (Standard rebuild, performance options, paint, etc.) Complete rebuild, stage4 porting, flat black,.lovely.
      4) Were any repairs needed at the time of rebuild, such as apex strip groove repairs? No Repairs, but a new dispacer was used, as mine was crap. I wondered what that rattling noise was...(j/k)
      Customer Satisfaction:
      1) In General, are you happy with the quality of materials/workmanship? You're Joking, Right?? 110%!
      2) Are you happy with the rebuilder's customer service? The only thing better than a killer quality charger rebuild is the experience of dealing with a consummate 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? Well, how does 256 on the MFA at 5900rpm with a 68mm pulley sound?? Um ..... Yes.
      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 did, but i nullified that myself by chucking the factory pulley (of course, only AFTER the 1500mile break-in period...).

      We've had John at BBM doing the chargers for the shop for the past 5 years or so. They have always been great to deal with, their prices are fair and any problems have been dealt with quickly & fairly. The work has ranged from rebuilds to fully modded compresors. We used to deal with a canadian supplier, shipping & customs charges were always more costly. I havebeen very happy with BBM, so are my customers.

      Rebuild services:
      1) Sent to BBM
      2) Sent the charger out Monday morning and by Wednesday morning I was on the phone with John discussing my options. It was there for a couple days and was sent right back out to me.
      3) I originally planned on just getting the charger refreshed, but with 55k miles on it John suggested getting a full rebuild so I don't have to worry for at least another 60k miles. Went with the OE Spec rebuild service. Charger was already a stage 4.
      4) Charger was in good chape internally and no repairs were needed there. However upon reassembly John noticed that the threads for bolting the charger in were stripping. After calling me to discuss it BBM put 6 Heli coils in.

      Customer satisfaction:
      1) Very happy. Charger looks good and sounds great in the car. (Just put it in this morning)
      2) Very happy with the customer service. Prompt replies to my emails and phone calls were made before any work was done.
      3) Boost level was good to begin with, this should fix my oil leak though.
      4) No warranty since I didn't go back to a stock pulley. Only warranty offered on the OE Spec is 6 months anyways. I trust the workmanship and if the parts fail it's my fault for going with OE Spec as opposed to OEM.
      Overall raiting:
      1) Quality of work: 10
      2) Customer service: 10

      I had a stage 4 rebuild and ordered all the other stage 4 bits, cam, chip,RS-2 outlet, FPR, 68mm pulley

      level) as a result of the rebuild, or as a result of the performance

      I did not check boost prior to the rebuild, I will break it in with the stock pulley and put the 68mm on soon
      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, 6 months, I have left the stock pulley on and will break in the charger with that

      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 days at BBM) (not bad considering I'm in hawaii 3 days both ways).
      3) What rebuild services did you have performed? Standard rebuild, performance options, paint, etc.
      Full O.E. Spec rebuild, RSR outlet silver paint job.

      None at the time

      Customer Satisfaction:
      1) In General, are you happy with the quality of materials/workmanship?
      Yes, I am very impressed. The charger looks brand new. No oil leaks, great packaging.
      2) Are you happy with the rebuilder's customer service?
      Very happy. As busy as John is he took the time to email me before I even sent my charger in and help me with other problems that my car was having. John called me to let me know when my charger got in and talked to me about possible options that I could get from them. Everything from performance upgrades to just a rebuild. In fact after discussing with John my plans for the Rado he even recommended against me doing some upgrades because they weren't needed. How many business owners would discourage their customers from spending more money? Also while re-installing my charger I broke one of the banjo bolts and John offered to send me one free of charge. How much more can you ask for?

      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?
      Due to the broken Banjo this will have to be updated later, but I can't wait to 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?
      If I had opted for the stock pulley John would have given me a 6 month warranty with the OE build, if I had gone the OEM rebuild it would have been a 1 year warranty. I chose to stick with my 68mm neuspeed pulley besides I have faith in BBM's work.

      On a side note, while I know that many people on these forums have their personal favorite tuners, myself included. What really impressed me about John & Co was the fact that even before I was a customer, John took the time to email me back about some questions that I had about my car. I am a first time Rado owner, owned lots of Honda's in the past. Have done a bunch of engine swaps and the like with them but knew nothing about VW's. John answered all my questions on a daily basis for about a week before I even told him that I was planning on sending my charger in to him. Then when I did send it in John never pushed for me to get anything that I didn't want done to the charger. Most local shops try so hard to sell you the full race package and John was quite the opposite. He made me feel like I was a friend rather than a customer. To me this is more important than any amount that I could have saved by sending it anywhere else that might have been slightly cheaper. IMHO if they take care of customers like that, then I can only imagine how well they take care of my parts.

      Just as aside I think that it is interesting to see the editing that has been done to this post. I had a dope charger built last year and posted my feedback, but apparently this thread is owned between BBM and KK. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthdown.gif[/IMG]
      Though I don't doubt they can build good chargers...what happened to freedom of the press????????


      Yes the one gets mad and sends nasty Im's with threats if you dont leave good feedback

      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?
      Ten days total with shipping to PUERTO RICO
      3) What rebuild services did you have performed? Standard rebuild,
      performance options, paint, etc.?
      I had the oe spec rebuild with mini port because the charger had the exhaust side already ported for the RSR and the super wide belt kit installed previously.
      4) Were any repairs needed at the time of rebuild, such as apex strip
      groove repairs?
      No repairs were required
      Customer Satisfaction:
      1) In General, are you happy with the quality of
      materials/workmanship?
      Absolutely, the charger looked brand new externally and the intake
      was very well massaged. Also a nice metal BBM badge on the top of the charger could atleast mean 15 psi more.
      2) Are you happy with the rebuilder's customer service?
      Yes, Sean answered the phone when I called with questions and
      answered anything I threw at him. John would also pick up the phone any other time and was very enthusiastic and helpfull.They got the charger in and out with the rebuild and mini port done in less than two weeks AND paid for the shipping back to Puert Rico that's customer service!
      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 have yet to put it in my car, I am guessing better boost but now with the 78 back on...I dont know.
      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, 6 months.

      Rebuild Services: Kompressor Kanada, & Motortechnik
      1) Who did you send your charger to for a rebuild?
      KK this time, I have had two previous rebuilds from Motortechnik.
      2) What was the turnaround time?
      With shipping included about a month. Dave had the charger for about 10 days, but it had to have the displacer welded. In contrast to Motortechnik, KK is faster, but with the shipping it comes out pretty close. Also, this was a straight rebuild no porting etc. (already been done) Basically with standard shipping KK is a month, Motortechnik is 6 weeks.
      3) What rebuild services did you have performed?
      Just a straight rebuild this time, the charger has already been ported.
      4) Were any repairs needed at the time of rebuild, such as apex strip groove repairs?
      The displacer was damaged a long time ago from hucking an apex. Motortechnik had pinned the displacer and cut the seal shorter to save me from having to get a displacer. Dave @ KK saw this and repaired the displacer (welded!!). I guess he's got some sort of trick-daddy-mo-fo that can weld magnesium. I got a new mainshaft too, as the charger was passing oil before the most recent rebuild.
      Customer Satisfaction:
      1) In General, are you happy with the quality of materials/workmanship?
      Very, I am pleased that the displacer was fixed instead of pinned.
      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?
      It's possible, but I'm breaking it in on a 78mm, and I was running a 61mm before....
      4) Did the rebuild come with a warranty? Yes 12 month with the stock pulley.

      Obviously some of you are wondering why I have had this thing built 3 times. The 61mm pulley makes the service life about 20K miles. Also, why did I switch builders? Price and turnaround time!
      Only issues with KK are:
      1. PAINTING MY CHARGER! It was perfectly clean bright shiny aluminum, and I asked Dave not to paint it, but now it's silver. It will look like sh!+ after the brake parts cleaner desolves half of it.
      2. Not being able to cut a dual cog belt setup for a 78mm pulley. I have to switch to my RS2 setup with the 61mm, but the 78mm is the single belt.
      Overall very pleased! I will be using KK again.
