its real important to use oem honda dw1 fluid for longevity. honda z1 and dw1 atfs use a high level of zinc whereas all other atf manufacturers use a phospherous additive. the zinc prolongs the life of the tranny. i wouldnt even really trust synthetic dw1 fluids for the honda 5 speed trans.

Just a quick update...I did a VIN search on the transmission that ordered. I was sold that it had 68k. Turns out that it actually had about 160k. It came from an 07 Accord SE that had just wrecked back in 6/2021. I know its not what as advertised but so far it's holding up fairly well.
was the bar code label still on it or did you get the numbers somewhere else on the transmission?
