How much does ECM help a stealth ship? Let's say a stealth ship has 100 armor and fighters and 500 ECM and tries to cloak past 500M fighters but is spotted. Let's say the SD has 350 cloak. Will the stealth's ECM likely save it?

Your stealth is dead.......(guessing) because you are cloaking into the sector.... But Using it for A@R might make you unstopable (Still Guessing) or avoiding an attack from anougher ship....(continued guess)

I think cloak would help it avoid an attack from another ship.

And even if I could get away with an AR, I don't think it'd have enough fighters to do anything.

I was just wondering because I don't really understand the purpose of allowing 600 ECM on a stealth, unless it helps you get into SGs or something.

Perhaps it's to protect against Ship vs Ship attacks?
As far as I can tell, if you get spotted by anything with attack capabilities you're pretty much screwed.

No, the EWD is great for saving you there. And again, it's engines that help evasion, not ECM.
