Default Turbo rebuild shop NoVa

Anyone know of a good shop in the northern VA area to do a turbo rebuild? It's gonna need a new compressor wheel so I think I'll leave it to the experts to freshen it up. Thanks.

Prepare for the raping. For the price they'll charge you to get it rebuilt you could get a turbo in good used condition. That is of course depending on the turbo, but alot of times that's the case. What turbo is it?

Can you tell me where I can find a compressor wheel? I can replace the wheel, do the bearings and seals, then get a shop to balance it right? Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
