Post haltec e6k vs tec II

ok, well i know i;m asking for a you know what storm by pitting vishnu agnst cobb, and loyal supporters of both against each other, however can we try and have a civilized discussion about the merits of each, and the dissadvantages as well like friendly subaru owners? i hope so. anyway i need computer help, i feel the need for more controle, and the only 2 options seem to be tec II or haltec. so i would like ot hear from anyone, specificly though those who might own one or the other.

my thoughts:
Tec II
+easier to tune
+lots of tuners with possible maps to help me out
+retains factory computer for trubble codes, other functions
-less controle than hal tec
-doesn't use factory sensors requiring trigger whell, and external mounting of sensative senor??
-retains factory computer leaving with necessity to keep unwanted stuff like egr.
have to mount stock computer underhood? is that correct??

Hal tec.
-hard to tune
-no one knows anything about it in terms of fuel ignition maps.
-requires dino time to properly tune
+uses factory sensors
+stand alone system

any other thoughts out there in E-subie land??
