I would use Honda MTF. I have actually used Honda MTF in almost everything: Triumphs, old VWs, you name it. It's an excellent oil.

I've liked Rotella T6 in my past civics. Wouldn't hesitate to use Redline, but the Honda fluid didn't seem to be as nice in the 5 speeds as the T6. I was going to try regular Rotella next time, but the T6 was still in there when I sold it.

^This. I loved Amsoil's product over Honda's by far in my old 92. Honda MTF was smoother initially but Amsoil's FMs didn't seem to wear out like the Honda fluid.

For the price try and find Honda mtf on Craigslist. If you want boutique stuff get redline or amsoil. Middle of the road would be synchromesh. Depending where you can find it cheap. I find using the Honda mtf and dumping at 15-30k miles is ok.
