I can't really tell who's winning the argument, but I have run my truck in many different climates as I travel alot those range from -10 to 110. It's always noisy when it's cold, at least I couldn't tell a difference. I ran motorcraft 15w-40 after purchasing my truck and changed it every 3k, after about a year I switched to T6 @ 5k no additive, I've been running it for two years and have replaced less injectors than I had to with the motorcraft. I personally "believe" the thinner oil is keeping my injectors happy. The best thing to do would be to spend the extra $2.00 per gal. and try it out for yourself then maybe decide if you want to add any kind of additive.
