Really, both are good brands. You have to think about it this way: you're going to throw it away in roughly 3,000 miles right? Either will do the trick, get what you can get the better deal on. I know Redline is kind of expensive.

In my Integra, I just use Castrol GTX 10W-30. It works fine for me, since I don't want to drop the cash on something I will throw away in a month. (I put about 3,000 miles a month on my car.) Maybe if I rebuild the B18B one day, I will run synthetic, but until then, I can't justify the switch from regular to synthetic. That's just me though.

I don't think he's talking about tranny fluid, but that is needless to say. Motor oil in a tranny is bad. You need to use either the redline MTF, or the one that I prefer, the Genuine Honda MTF.
