Mobil Delvac Super 1300

What do you guys think of the Mobil Delvac product? I changed over from delo and the truck runs much smoother and starts up much easier. I wasnt very happy with delo at 3k drains. seemed too foamy at drains. I was doing research and the delvac runs closes to amsoil synthetic blend compared to all other dynos in the viscosity testing. seems to have more shear protection and anti foam agents along with more robust hydro properties. Im sure it was just a stupid rumor but I heard delo no longer runs a hydro additive? does anyone know of this? A buddy of mine owns a decent sized auto-repair shop and a oil rep told him this... dont know it its true or not.

Ya I was looking to extend my drains by 1k. So if your runnin a tuned 7.3 at 4k intervals on Delvac this is great news to me. The delo just seemed so dirty and foamy at only 3k but I do mostly in town driving. thanks for the reply.
