Is anyone running a different transmission fluid than what Honda/Acura recomends? ie AMSOIL, Royal Purple etc?

Off the top of my head.. Torqo MTF, Redline MTL or MT-90 (used both before), Amsoil Synchromesh. All good fluids.

I did a ton of reading on this and was going to place Amsoil in my tranny. However, that being said I stayed with OEM. The new OEM ATF is full syn and that is what I really wanted and didn't have to worry about mixing the ATF either. I just drain it with the oil change and refull 3 quarts. 25 back max for the 3 Q of ATF (DW-1).

I did a fluid swap, not flush, about 10 months ago, @ ~ 60k on my 07 using the AMSOIL ATF. Shifting had been slightly delayed especially on downshifts. After about 4-5 months the shifting got tighter, and seems much snappier again. So all in all would highly recommend the AMSOIL ATF, given my results.
