Factory torque converter questions

I'm going to rebuild my 4r100 so I have some questions about the torque converter.

The diesel torque converter is supposed to be a 110K unit and low stall ones are 95 K. What is a K? And since the "K" value usually isn't listed on new converters does that mean they wont know if I ask what theirs is?

I also read that the 6.0l style converter that is made to mate to the 7.3l has a lower stall, triple disk design and so its great for street trucks. AND that ford went to this design in 03 so the unit I would buy from ford for $300 is a 6.0L style(the one for the 7.3L of course). Anyone know for sure?

I'm also looking at this rebuild kit if anyone would like to comment:
