What is the definition of "GOOD"? It seems to hold up very well as an ATF, especially as it is designed for old transmission that might have leaky gasket. It also seems to be close enough in friction to many spec out there and not shift b

Just because a product is made in another country does not make it any better or worse than one made here. Their gold filters are some of the best in the industry.

Straight Dex-III in a Honda transmission of that vintage? No!!!!!!!!! Use DW-1, Amsoil ATF, or Maxlife ATF. Those are known to work well in Honda transmissions that specified Z-1.
