Do you have a check engine light? If you have the stock ECU, it shoudl tell you what is working and what is not. If you have no CEL's my bet is it is working. The stock ECU is quite smart.

Standalone does not write over the ECU. Standalone does not communicate with the stock ECU in any way, that si why it is called Standalone.

A Standalone works by itself and does not require the aid of another ECU to run the engine and car. Examples of NON-Standalones are the Xede, UTEC, Unichip, AFC, ITC, Boost Controllers, ETC...

The Stock ECU will not be overwritten, in fact nothing will change on it at all.
