Back a few years ago, a loose converter meant no fluid coupling, but things have come so far in just the last 4-5 years, that you can now have a converter that will flash and stall up to 2500-2700 RPM but still couple well and put power down. A properly selected converter can make or break a turbo setup. I've been installing a lot of R converters lately, and they're great with stock turbos, smaller compounds, or mid size singles (either VVT or fixed geometry). I've never used Evan's converter, but from what I hear, it acts very similar to the R. I don't think you would be disappointed with either one.

The 1078 has more fluid coupling then the R and works a lot better in higher hp applications with vgts.
