I completely disagree with the stock ecu plus piggy back crap is better than an Rtek.
Haltech is always hands down better.
I personally drifted on my Rtek1.7 for 2 years with NO PROBLEMS whatsoever. Downpipe, exhaust, v-mount, 750 secondarys and Walboro pump. Stock boost and stock turbo put down 175WHP on it's best run with a crap-tastic FD pump that was almost total garbage. I have the Rtek2.1 now and have had ZERO problems with that too. So 3 years, 6K to 8.5k RPM all day and a ton of drifting, starts everytime.
My friends drift car ran the 1.7 for 5 YEARS with NO PROBLEMS and my same setup but with a front mount. 3 years ago he upgraded to a 2.1 and made 260WHP on a street tune he did himself a few weeks before a dyno day. He's still drifting on this tune, motor and ecu with NO problems AT ALL.
I'd never use a fuel cut of any kind for a limiter but I stand behind my Rtek 100%, a system is only as good as it's programmer/user. It's proven itself over and over and for less then $500. Plug it in, set your parameters and go drive. Done and done. Yes, there are better out there but unless your going for bigger numbers like 300+ at the wheels the Rtek is fine.
