Question Amsoil decisions

Ok ive done some researching in the previous threads and have yet to find the answers Im looking for. I have ordered Amsoil for my 2005 F350 6.0 diesel. It has 96,000 miles on it. Also got the engine flush. Im concerned about the weight. I ordered 5w30. Series 3000. I cant use the 5w40 it is only manufactured for vehicles 2007 and on. So the other choice is posted below Amsoil as well. Which should I get??

Synthetic Heavy-Duty Diesel & Marine Motor Oil SAE 15W-40 (AME)

Engineered for all types of diesel engines with an emphasis on modern, low emission heavy duty diesel engines. High 12 TBN controls acids from combustion blow-by and EGR. High levels of detergency and dispersancy additives control soot thickening, oxidation and wear. Resists bore polishing, deposit formation and ring sticking. Provides clean engine performance. Extended drain capabilities reduce downtime and motor oil expenses.[/B]

5w-40 is backwards compatable.......They are simply informing that it is OK to use in the newer engines.

Oil

It meens that its the only oil you can use in 2007 and newer but you can use this or the old oil in 2006 or older. Also marine oil is designed to be used at different temps, conditions and durations and can lead to problems if used in a non marine application.
