Wear seems tobe inline with other Honda v6 5sp auto UOAs. Probably do another drain/fill at 39k; might try MTFGLIDE. Thoughts?

Looks good the me! I would continue with the 15,000 mile changes. Your iron level after the change would be about 45ppm. I think you are doing the right thing by changing it at the 15,000 mile intervals.

I agree with the 15k mile change intervals b/c you aren't changing near all of the fluid at a time. That's what I'm doing on my 02 Honda Accord 4-speed automatic.

Per SF, the MTFGLIDE can be used for manual tranny that specs ATF. AutoGlide is the fluid used for automatic but I'm waiting on clarification whether it can be used as Z1 replacement.
