Default Oil filter pressure relief valve OEM part E vs B

Hi guys, looking to do an oil change and I have had a hard time finding the mann 840/2 anywhere other than idparts $20 shipping to canada

I read that OEM part number 068115561E vs 068115561B are the same except that "E" has a higher pressure rating for the relief valve to open (36psi).

Checking mann website the 840/2 and 940/25 both have the same 36psi pressure rating on the relief valve. The posts talking about this pressure difference are from the early 2000's if not before so does this still hold true?

There are a bunch of other aftermarket spin on filters from the likes of Wix, Bosch, Hastings, etc yet they all seem to be around the 30psi range for the pressure relief. Not sure 6psi makes a world of difference considering how much more difficult / expensive it is to find the 068115561E (mann 840/2)
