I'm about to perform a maintenance to my 6 speed transmission. Looks like a basic oil replacement and the service manual indicates 10W-30.

Those of you with experience, what are you running and what type of oil would you recommend? Regular? Mobil 1? Royal Purple? AMSOIL? And what is this Synchromesh stuff?

i'd HIGHLY recommend the GM synchromesh fluid.

i've used both the RP and the GM stuff, and i liked the GM stuff more.

from what I hear the new Acura MTF is basically the GM stuff, try that!

Yeah, Acura and Honda have updated their MTF. They don't recommend just oil anymore. You might get it at the Honda dealer for less, but in my case the Acura dealer was cheaper.
I didn't really notice a difference with their first MTF when I used it, but the newest stuff there is a slight difference. On the G1 3rd gear slides in a little better.
