Wanted to pick y'alls brains for a bit! I'm buying transmission fluid today and I was wondering which one is the best for my daily driver/street car?

You can also run Mercon 5. Higher temp rating than DexIII/Merc, and its semi synthetic.

i use royal purple synchromesh. i'm pretty sure that all modern transmission fluid is group 3 which is considered synthetic.
