I used this fluid after getting my transmission rebuilt and compared it to some OEM fluid. I kept both fluids in for about 3,000 miles each and the Royal could not match how smooth the car shifted with the OEM fluid. With the weather getting colder, I notcied that the transmission was notchy for a long time while the car warmed up with the Royal fluid over the OEM fluid making shifting easy even when cold. Overall, I think I will stick to OEM fluid over the Royal Purple, but I will probably try some other fluids as well.

Like everything else...
I originally used the OEM Acura trans fluid and noticed how much slicker the gears go in. I have now opted to try this fluid since RSX trans are so delicate and need much attention. I really don't think it made that much of a difference. Maybe it's better than Acura brand but who knows. 2nd gear goes in nicely, but can't say it's a huge noticeable difference from Acura brand. My only recommendation is changing the 6 speeds trans fluid every 30K. What brand you use is up to you.

Good, but not incredible.
I have the typical third gear grind and I have heard everyone raving about how good RP in regards to tranny fluid, I put this stuff in the car and did see an improvement over the old fluid, but nothing mindblowing, fluid can't fix a sychro. The motor oil on the other hand is really excellent, havent burned a drop since I changed it.

Using stock honda oil before. Been using this for about 1 year/10,000 miles and it shifts perfectly with no grinds like it did with honda oil. I say give it try.

I bought this transmission fluid a while back. It holds up great, 10k miles later no problems.
