Cool Motor Oil for 7.3 Delo LE?

I'm changing my oil and for the first time noticed the DELO 15-40 LE.

I've always used the standard DELO 400 15-40 with great results, but have zero experience with the LE.

Any downside to using this on my Early '99 7.3?

Has anyone used the Valvoline Blue 15-40 in place of DELO, and if so, any pros or cons?

Thanks in advance for the awesome help on this forum!

As far as I know all the delo is le(low emissions bs) its just like any other oil out there now.. I run some old skool stuff myself.. either way I change my oil every 3k for less than 40 bucks and my trucks runnin great... its all a matter of opinion.. then theres the amsoil guys that swear they have liquid gold(might as well be for the cost of the chit). lol

After a closer look, it is just a change in the label. I have been using LE all along, but the new label has a huge LE on it and makes it appear to be a different product.....but it's not. Still the same old oil....
