Melling vs OEM LPOP

Find Melling makes a replacement OEM pump M208. Some of you have them. What are the differences between these and the pump Navistar specs/installs?
In the winter time with temps near 0 and 5w40 weight synthetic oil I can still occasionally hit 80 psi if I apply too much skinny pedal before the oil is warmed up. This I am told is the pressure the filter will bypass the filtration element. Really don't want to do that on a regular basis. So what are the advantages of the Melling unit. I know, I know move to a warmer climate. If only I could get the University of Michigan to move to Kentucky.

I ran a -4 line from by the oil filter to the inspection hole on the top of the HPOP reservoir.
