ill tell you this, the books i have used in a shop for 15 years now all say about the same thing. up until 1995 you can use either 1030 or 1040, the latter is better for more freeway driving. '96 changed to a fluid that is just better to get from the dealer. if you use the 80w, you will feel a difference, more difficult to shift i would just bet.

either use 10/30 or your honda MTF . do not put 80w in your vehicle , won't be shifting too easily .
