Kokeln Turbo

Can anyone with experience, please recommend a good rebuilder for this turbo? It's been sitting on my bench for a few years and I'd like to get it rebuilt and installed.

I’d highly recommend Turbos Direct in Glendale, Az.
They rebuilt mine a few years back. I don’t recall the price but I do remember it being very reasonable. Pretty quick turnaround as well. I believe they mostly deal with Garret but it would be worth a call.
I’ve had a few Kokeln turbos. I dig em. Good luck.

Thanks. IIRC the Kokeln is based on a Garret with ceramic bearings, so maybe it's a good match sending to them. I'll call...

I just had Charlie at Evergreen turbo in Florida rebuild my K27. He did a great job and he came highly recommended.
