DME Tuning VS RK Autowerks

I am very close to getting down pipes and a tune.
With that being said, I have DME tuning in Houston about 45 mins away from were I am at.
I also have RK Autowerks in Dallas up north about a 3hr drive.
Which tuning company is my best bet?
Thoughts, comments, ideas, reviews appreciated please and thank you.

100% DME, I am in Houston and constantly beat the living hell out of my M6 for the past 5 years with Stage 3 DME tune. Back then I had downpipes and tune my car made a solid 675whp. You can check my IG for all my races @kauvsti

+1 for DME Tuning

+ 1 for RK Autowerks, had RK autowerks build my motor upgrade my turbos from PS1 to G25-660 and now have their tune pushing 900whp. Also got rid of the JB4 instead now standalone snow meth controller and Bootmod3 with their custom map(s)

I also want to make it known that before my motor build I had a DME tune using Jb4 to 25psi. Mo provided great customer service.

You are out around Lake Conroe? I am right off 1488 so not far from you. I just picked up a 14 M6 GC and will be getting DME tune as soon as I get downpipes in the next week or two.

The DME guys are great. They have tuned a bunch of cars for me/some customers of mine and all have turned out great. They will even come out to your house and flash your car. That is of course if you aren't looking for a dyno tune.

I currently have mine with RK's team for rebuilt engine, DP's and Tune. I haven't worked out the details on the mods yet but sadly it won't be a 900hp rocket

Does DME do builds & turbo upgrades as well, or just the tune?

DME specializes in tunes for stock and upgraded turbos, but they do work closely with ted/europower and tom/autocouture for mechanical work such as installing turbos.

RK autowerks/Raza specialize in rebuilding motors. Wether it be a stock rebuild or one with forged internals, turbos etc.

I follow both of them closely and both are good at what they do along with excellent customer service.
