Air-cooled ex­pert to bol­ster RPM Technik’s Spe­cial Projects Di­vi­sion

911 Porsche World - - News And Views -

Buck­ing­hamshire-based RPM Technik has re­cruited Chris Boys, the renowned Porsche tech­ni­cian. Boys will work along­side Ol­lie Pre­ston in RPM Technik’s Spe­cial Projects Di­vi­sion.

Boys brings an un­ri­valled level of Porsche ex­pe­ri­ence hav­ing been at JZ Machtech (JZM) for 32 years where he made his name as a lead­ing ex­pert in early 911s from long bon­net cars to 993s. Boys’ ex­per­tise prom­ises to strengthen the grow­ing rep­u­ta­tion of RPM Technik’s spe­cialised restora­tion and tun­ing ac­tiv­i­ties.

While Boys is new to the com­pany, he is no stranger to key RPM Technik per­son­nel. “I’m so happy to be mak­ing the move,” says Boys, “hav­ing seen what RPM Techink has been achiev­ing in re­cent years. Ol­lie (Pre­ston) used to be my ap­pren­tice and we have al­ways kept in touch over the years. They have some ex­cit­ing things go­ing on and a huge rep­u­ta­tion within the in­dus­try so when the op­por­tu­nity arose it was hard to turn down.”

Boys started in the mo­tor trade aged 11 work­ing at a fam­ily friend’s garage. A fif­teen-year ca­reer work­ing on dif­fer­ent makes gave him a great plat­form and un­der­stand­ing of the in­dus­try be­fore he start­ing work­ing on Porsche.

Chris prides him­self not only for his ex­per­tise on Porsche, but also pass­ing on his knowl­edge in train­ing highly pro­fes­sional Porsche Tech­ni­cians. Fully trained on Bosch fuel in­jec­tion sys­tems (espe­cially K-jet and Motronic) as well Porsche elec­tronic sys­tems and di­ag­no­sis, Chris’s ap­point­ment can only be de­scribed as highly ben­e­fi­cial to RPM Technik’s stand­ing as one of the UK’S lead­ing Porsche spe­cial­ists.

“Chris is a ge­nius when it comes Porsche, says Pre­ston, “espe­cially air-cooled mod­els so it’s great to have him on board. With­out him there may not even have been RPM in the first place. His pas­sion, skill and at­ten­tion to de­tail were some­thing that I really ben­e­fited from as a young tech­ni­cian. I have been able to take th­ese val­ues into what we do here, so it seems fit­ting he now joins us.”
