Honda spends billions on R&D on the trans, they know exactly how they work and what lubrication they need. They have developed there MTF fluid to work with there trans and provide the best lubrication for the trans.

Acura and Honda MTF is the same stuff. If it was a stiraght up balls to the wall track car I would recommend royal purple mtf. But for a DD thats not pushing a ton of power through it, its not needed.

I friggin hate Acura for engineering this 6MT to take 2 and a bit of one other bottle... ARGH. Such a waste of $$$ fluid!

But yes, Honda/Acura MTF is THE BEST for the 6MT. If I had an AT (like my wife's Odyssey), I would ONLY run OEM there as well. As another poster said, Honda/Acura spend billions in R&D. They know what works. They have spec'd the EXACT lubricant for their transmissions (and brake systems, and clutch lines, and power steering, etc...). They don't make the lubricants, they spec them perfectly for the intended application.
