I had a transgo shift kit in my AOD and it would chirp second just giving it 3/4 throttle. I used the cheap store brand but I serviced mine regularly and never had a problem with it. The B&M stuff or Royal Purple are probally the best but I wouldnt stress over it, just change the trans filter and fluid regularly and youl be fine. Especially if you dont beat on it all the time.

Personally I wouldn't use RP if someone gave it to me for free, I would stick with Valvoline, B&M, or anything be Mobil, or AMSoil

I use valvoline..... motor, trans, rear end
