Honda MTF
Most shops will even suggest it over any other synthtic fluids like RP, redline, torco etc.

why does honda mtf suck on your car?
what car and tranny?
since you use gm syncromesh, im assuming your tranny is grinding in 3rd gear?

the problem with honda mtf is that it does NOT last long


especially first thing in the morning where u try to shift while the car is cold


I tried motul too, its nice but its too thick. Therefore takes longer to warm up

OEM Honda fluids. There is a reason they make it specifically for Hondas.

most popular ones for Hondas are: amsoil, honda mtf, and GM synchromesh (aka ACDelco)
I'm running on ACDelco on my rsx-s, feels better than honda MTF imho
my friend's running on amsoil, said too feels better than honda MTF
so it's up to you basically

^^^^^^ This is what I would tell you as well. I actually spoke with a highly trusted friend who is one of the top mechanics at the local Honda dealership today regarding this. I'm looking into getting a B17 trans with carbon coated syncros and a Type-R LSD in it. He told me (very generally) about the reformulated Honda MTF. I was previously using Royal Purple 10-W30 in my transmissions which I loved. He told me that with the new additives in the Honda MTF it would smooth shifts and prolong the trans as well as the LSD. So once I put it in, Honda MTF it is for my baby!!!
