MLV must be setup for your wideband, once you have it setup right though it should work perfectly.
What wideband are you using?

Did you calibrate the LC1 for linear output? If not make sure you use LC1 Default when setting MLV up for your wideband.

Well, the first two have mustang dynos (not sure about the third) so even if they're owned by drooling idiots they're a step ahead of every single dyno shop in my area...
