Default reflash reliability question

Have they been any noted reliability issues with either the Cobb reflash or the ECUtek?

I'm considering getting a stage 2 from one or the other, but I'm curious if this could cause long term engine damage.

Are they any report of failure at 6 months to a year of reflash from anyone out there?

Not that I have seen, which doesn't say there isn't a case out there. There might be a few ECUtek cases since some of those folks run aftermarket turbos which can make the engine go boom quicker if not properly tuned. I wouldn't place the blame on ECUtek, but rather the tuner. Most of the Cobb folks are plug and play kinda guys and I think reliability is super high with their stuff. I would say that if you have a stock turbo that either would be a good reliable choice. I would also say that Cobb would be the safer option since ECUtek runs more boost, which it would be safe to assume that would lead to a faster failure rate.
