    I am about to install a ob1 gsr. I would like to drain the trans fluid and replace it with new fluid. I was told in my sohc to use castrol gtx. Would I use this in the gsr trans as well?

    I think I'm going to go with the honda MTF. Cant go wrong with using honda fluid in honda transmissions. Thanks for the input guys! I appreciate your help.

    I use Pennzoil Synchromesh Fluid. That and occasionally some Lucas if something seems off.

    you only need to use Synchromesh fluid if you're getting minor grinds.. if the tranny is fine, i see no reason to spend $11 a quart on synchromesh

    Maybe the syncromesh would help prevent having grinds in the first place.

    Regular Honda MTF has sychromesh/friction additives already.
