About Our Company
RPM Engines & Machine has been in business for 30 years, 21 years in Sonoma County, California. Over the years we have strived to offer the best quality of engine machine work available. Our relentless pursuit of this has taken the company to new heights in the performance, general engine machining and automotive service and repair.
In 1994 RPM started offering complete automotive repair, including performance tuning, brake work, fabrication, engine installation, computer diagnostic and more.. Our Facility encompasses 10,000 sq. ft. of which 4,000 is machine shop and fabrication, and the remaining 6,000 sq. ft. is our new automotive repair & fleet maintenance facility.. We are now able to offer complete one stop shopping for all of your personal chariot needs.
Rpm Engines also does a great deal of R&D work with Flowmaster mufflers. Kevin McClelland and John Wilson head up this department. They do research and development for GM Performance division on engines two to three years prior to the engines hitting the street. Kevin McClelland also has articles that he writes for Hot Rod Magazine and others each month, look for his name and the answers to many of your questions. In the August of 1996 and October of 1997 issues of Hot Rod Magazine, RPM Engines was featured along with Flowmaster Mufflers.
RPM Engines performed all the necessary machine work for these power houses. The latest engine was called the Blue Flame Special, it was a 502 Gm crate engine that produced 659 hp with a 1050 Dominator on pump gas. Then Kevin hooked up the nitrous to this monster and it cranked out an amazing 1024 hp on 92 octane pump gas. Not bad for a grocery-getter…
In the early months of 1998, RPM Engines also added a chassis dynamometer.. Have you ever wondered how much horsepower your car has? We are now able to test and tune at any speed up to 200 mph and up to 1200 hp at the rear wheels.. Measure the before H.P. Then when when you make changes to your car, truck or motor home you will be able to check out the claims that other manufactures make with their products.
I know it sounds like we do a lot of performance work, performance work is just part of the equation, through our performance work we learn what works and what doesn’t so that we can bring the best to you.. We specialize in customer service and quality of the product and services that we perform.
RPM Engines look forward to serving you in the future, if you have any questions please call us at 707-584-8230 or email us.
