Brake fluid

I've two unopened bottles of this brake fluid. I'll be doing a flush on the 98. Am I good to go with this stuff? Thank you.

Starter,
Yes, I had also used two bottles of the same brand on the Motive Power Bleeder and had enough of it (including the large amount of fluid required for the clutch), in accordance to the manual..

To do a full flush you need 1 liter
Somewhere on one of the forums I found the amounts needed for each caliper to flush the caliper and its associated line.

If you are doing just street driving, pretty much any DOT 3 or 4 fluid will work. If you are tracking or Autocross, you want a higher temp fluid like ATE type 200 or Motul 600.
