Default Utek with ECUTEK Flash

I am currently running a ECUtek flash and was wandering if its a bad idea to run a Utek on top of my current flash. I need a retune but do not have the time to send out the Ecu to flash back to stock. I appreciate the input.

I run the AP under the UTEC. Makes my maps look odd to everyone else but it works. Most of the features the UTEC adds can be 'passed-through' so the ECU maintains control. If you want boost, fuel, or timing to be left in the ECUs hands, just put "ECU" in that part of the UTEC map.

I run the UTEC with a EcuTeK TEK3 custom tune flashed ECU. Runs fine and I have not have any weird issues.

Definitely doesn't make tuning hard in my experience. However I've never used UTEC with the stock ECU.

I would say its easier. If the flash is accurate you should have an easy time with the 0% and the transitions.
