I've done many similar mods on a 12 year old automatic Camry...

Nothing wrong with Redline or Amsoil, but Castrol is also worth considering, given its good price on Amazon smile

I hope someone chimes in that theyve used amsoil or redline CVT where HCF2 was specified, because im curious how they performed.

If you've changed CVT fluid 6x at this point (every 20K miles), I'd think you're good as-is. 6x better than most.

I agree. Contaminates and wear metals drain out with the old fluid. Using fresh fluid is always a plus. I am not sure straying too far from the OEM fluid spec is required or helpful. Nor do I believe there will be much difference between brands that make compatible fluids. I think it would simply be a guess at this point. CVT's have some very interesting operational conditions. Honda's CVT is different than Nissan's and has a different fluid requirement. I don't think Redline's fluid is the right choice.

Plus your wife can drive it since it doesn't have a manual transmission.
