I use the Baldwin. It seems to be made in the USA and seems pretty stout.

It's funny seeing this discussion. If you want to change it, go for it. I had injector stiction issues when I bought my 96. It had 224k on it and thought I was going to be ordering some injectors. So I changed the oil and also the hpop oil and also added some Hotshots stiction eliminator. I did the hpop oil for a couple of more oil changes and it cleared up the injectors. Now I change it every third oil change. The engine has 330k now and it's running great.
So in the end, it's up to you. I think it works. I remember the first time I did it, the oil was broken down and had a really strong smell. It was very thick also. Now, it comes out as just dirty oil when it's changed every third time. Some will say it's a waste of time but it's your time in the end.
