Amsoil "dme" or "ame"?

Im switching to amsoil but not sure whether to use 10w-40 dme or 10w40-ame?
What I do know is, The dme is the top one for engines with a diesel Particulate filter, But I have full DPF delete engine so unsure which is best ?
any advice or comments are welcome..

I would think, just from the way I'm reading about them, that either one should be fine to run since you don't have the dpf on anymore. The dme seems to be more specific for the dpf trucks because its for low ash and emissions compliant, among other stuff I'm sure. Personally I would probably still run the dme in an 08 if I were going to run Amsoil. I'm sure an Amsoil dealer will be along soon to help you.

hey I run the amsoil 5w-40 i really have had good luck with it I also installed the bypass filteration kit for the truck its pretty cool except the fact I now have to change two filters but amsoil products are really good just expensive because of the amway business thing they do!

Thanks Guys, very helpful I was thinking along the same way

I researched till my eyes bled and the two fingers I type with became stubs with no actual comment that the ame is more targeted to my engine , considering the dpf is thankfully gone.
Can anyone that has alot of oil understanding tell that the ame is the one for any engine without a dpf?

I would stick with the DEO 5w40 or DME15w40, even if you have have no DPF. I run the DEO 5w40 year around in my 08 with a by-pass, even when i had the DPF still on the truck. If you are interested in the AMSOIL line of products shoot me a PM or email me and i can save you 15%-25% off retail. I'm a Independent dealer for Amsoil, Aggrand, Altrum.
