Put our turbocharger rebuilding knowledge and obsessive attention to detail to work for you. When Tim’s Turbos rebuilds your turbocharger, it will be like new – or better – when we ship it back.

Our Turbocharger Breakdown and Cleaning Process

After identifying the turbocharger and vehicle, we etch out the rotation, tear it down to each individual part, and determine the factors that may have caused the turbocharger to fail. All reusable parts are examined and measured for any signs of wear.

Major casting parts are tumbled and de-burred, and all sharp edges are broken down. (If you’re under the hood as much as we are, your knuckles will thank us!) Oil gales are cleared out and hot tanked. After the initial cleaning and inspection, all parts are ultrasonically cleaned.

The Turbocharger Rebuild

All Tim’s Turbos rebuilds include bearings, thrust bearings, seals, O-rings, piston rings, thrust parts, nuts, and bolts. If we need to replace worn turbine wheels, housings, and/or compressor wheels, we will provide you with an updated estimate before we finish the rebuild – we don’t like a surprise bill anymore than you do.

Assembly will be blue printed, and each part of the rotor group (compressor and turbine wheel) will be straightened and balanced using competition turbo balancing on our Heins TC3 machine (we balance beyond factory specs). Finally, we conduct VSR testing to ensure the turbocharger rebuild is up to our standards and performing at peak potential.

Naturally, we’ll let you know if any upgrades are available for your turbocharger, such as compressor wheels, turbine wheel clipping, wastegate porting, thrust bearings, etc.

Standard turbocharger rebuilding costs starts out at 3-3.5 hours labor at $90 an hour Plus parts to complete a correct rebuild. While VNT and VGT turbos start at 4-6 hours labor. You will always receive a FREE full estimate before the rebuild begins and have access to our knowledgeable technicians before, during, and after the rebuild.

Tim is great!! He took his time to open up the turbo on the spot. He showed me how it failed and why. This was the 2nd turbo from another shop. Tim figured out what was wrong with my engine and solved the on going problem. Very experienced guy, I highly recommend Tim's Turbos.

I can't say enough good things about Tims turbos. I had Tim rebuild, balance, and upgrade the compressor wheel on a Garrett turbo. Everything went smooth as butter and turnaround was quick.Tim is a true master of his craft. He is extremely knowledgeable and very helpful. I don't trust anyone else to service my turbo's.

Tim's customer service was excellent. My turbo was so old that he couldn't find spares anywhere in the country, and neither could I. He returned the unit to me and did not charge me for any of his time, nor return shipping. Many thanks, Tim !!!

I just wanted to say that"m really happy with Tim's repair on my turbo. Very nice guy to work with and absolutely knows his stuff. I've learned to not trust people with my vehicles and their parts, but Tim relieved any hesitation I had once I spoke with him. I'd definitely very highly recommend him to any of my friends. Great price too, especially considering this was a manufacturer he doesn't typically deal with. Thanks again Tim, I appreciate everything!

Got my IHI vf52 rebuilt by Tim, he did a fantastic job with the rebuild and took his time to explain the things that could have caused the failure to help make sure it didn't happen again. The turbo is now back on the engine along with the Forced Performance oil supply kit that Tim ordered for me, I have about 600 miles on it so far and it is performing flawlessly. Tim really knows his stuff, I highly recommend Tim's Turbos for any turbo work you need!
