Do we have rules for that? I can't think of any...

The major problem with stealth, coming from the GURPS side, is that even with cool reactionless you need to get power from somewhere. And just about all power sources will blow your heat signature past the stealth threshold on their own.

EDIT: If you've got the switch where reactionless drives don't require power points to run, you're golden.
