I'm not sure what you're asking, but I'll give a shot at explaining why I'm doing what I'm doing. Oil always thins out as it heats up. In essence, we don't really care about the temperature of the oil, we just want it to be as thin as it can be without damaging the transmission. Since the transmission was designed to work with Honda MTF, that is what I will be using. But, I will heat it up to thin it out a bit.
