What happened to 2-androstenol?
MMV2, from what you've got written there, is epi-androsterone. 3-AD contains (regular) androsterone.
They both don't convert to stanolone at the same rate.
The epi-version, being 5-beta-reduced, will convert more readily to epi-DHT. The reason why the hydroxyls are facing different directions is due to the orientation of the A-ring on the steroidal chain. Mis-orientation can create a steric, leading to a dampered binding-affinity for the androgen receptor.

yeah i know each has different things along with it but wanted to know the difference... what your conversion rate to stanolone??

Well, the conversion rate of an oral 17-keto steroid to a 17-hydroxy is about 60%. After this step, however, there is the conversion of the 3-hydroxyl to a 3-ketone, which isn't quite as high, but I would suppose similar.
So for a simple approximation, we've got two steps, each at about 60% of a favorable conversion rate. 60%*60% = about 40%
