Lots of parts are interchangeable, and since I've owned my TL, it has never seen the inside of an Acura dealership here in New Hampshire (but it did see the inside of one in New Jersey).

As for fluids, virtually any 0W-20 or 5W-20 will work in the engine, however, DO NOT use Honda MTF in the transmission. The proven MTF for the 6MT in our cars is ACDelco Synchromesh Friction Modified (I stressed that last bit because there is also a non-Friction Modified version of Synchromesh which is bad for our transmissions). For fluids like coolant and power steering fluids, the consensus is to stick with Honda/Acura branded fluids.

If I'm not mistaken the octane requirement is 91 octane.

You are correct, sort of, the minimum requirement for the 3G TL is 91 AKI. Funny thing, in many parts of the country, including here in New England, 91 AKI is not available, the options are 87, 89, and 93.
