Hopefully they make a bag version

I have used this in my Honda and it definitely is better. I changed my MT fluid with Honda oem for a few times. I then switched to the Amsoil and there was no longer 1st gear pop outs. I’m hoping they make a BAG version like they do with their gear fluids

Works great

This is the only oil the trans shop recomends for the NV5600. If I use any other oil warranty will be void. Shift great!
