Mike, is anyone using the MLG-K converter in a pulling truck application?

How does a 1055 stack up to the MLG-K?

The K converter stalls a little higher than the 1055.

I've got a new LL converter that I installed in Brians truck. It stalls out at 3000. So far it spools his bigger turbo better and it still couples well. The K stalls out at 2600 and is very streetable.

How tight should a 1055 act pre boost when trying to stage? It is hard for me to get it to stall over 2000 rpm till I get a good bit of boost, it also flashes at 1600 rpm. Does that sound about right? It seems to couple very well, makes my s480 single DD great.

I think it should stall 2400. Check your tunes.

I can stall it to 2400 but it takes a second.

You can put the same converter in 3 diifferent trucks with 3 different turbo/fuel/tuning setups and they will all stall and react a little different.

I figured it would act a little tighter since it takes a second to get boost from my 80.

It's awesome, converters keep getting better and better. my single S483/96/1.0 T4 spools great for a 96 turbine. My part throttle smoke has reduced and to me, it's easier to drive. I have a good feeling this converter is going to be "the one" for big single trucks.

Agreed. A K converter in a big single truck reacts very differently than a K converter in a big twin kit.

Getting serious are we Brian?

How does the ML R compare? Thats what Caleb had in stock so thats what we put in my Dually. Given the chance I would have chosen a tigher one obviously but I dont see much difference being its always towing with converter locked.
